  • The exhibition Giacometti: Memory and Presence profiles Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) as one of the titans of 20th-century modernism. Designed chronologically, it captures Giacometti’s artistic maturation from youthful explorations to his greatest achievements. The exhibition includes sculptures, paintings, prints, drawings and decorative objects by Giacometti, revealing the aesthetic evolution, emotional power and existential qualities of his work. 

    Highlighted in the exhibition are seven plasters. The plasters give viewers a sense of the intended qualities of the work, often fashioned by the artist’s own hand, and how those characteristics are revealed in a bronze.

    Audiences also will experience the sense of intimacy Giacometti conveyed in much of his work. On view are images that represent his close bond with his two brothers, Diego and Bruno, and his parents, Giovanni and Annetta, as well as his wife and frequent model, Annette.

    Along the way, go in-depth with exhibition extras such as Modern Mondays, Jazz at the Bechtler, and art lectures from distinguished art historians and curators. 

    This exhibition will be open from August 31, 2012 to February 8, 2012 on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday noon-5pm. Admission is $8 for adults; $6 for seniors, college students and educators; $4 for youth ages 11 to 14; and free for younger children. For more information, visit www.bechtler.org
