GIACOMETTI INSTITUTE

Specialised museum |
Vintage plate 2018

Inaugurated in 2018 and housed in a beautiful listed Art Deco style mansion, the Giacometti Institute is the Parisian landmark dedicated to the artist Alberto Giacometti and run by the Foundation Giacometti. Created in 2003, its mission is to protect, disseminate and promote the work of one of the greatest modern artists of the 20th century. The Foundation has a collection of 10,000 works that it is responsible for preserving and promoting.
At the Giacometti Institute, a programme of temporary exhibitions with original themes provides a better understanding of the artist's work. The Institute, bright, soothing and on a human scale, is the perfect setting to sublimate the works of Giacometti. One of the most beautiful spaces is undoubtedly the permanent presentation of Alberto Giacometti's workshop, which attracts visitor as soon as he enters the Institute. All the elements kept by the artist's widow are on display; they are perfectly authentic, from the unfinished works through the artist's personal objects and tools, to the original walls on which Alberto Giacometti painted and drew.

autour de l'atelier du maitre
Peut-être plus un conservatoire de l'oeuvre qu'un musée, on y voit tout de même l'émouvant atelier du maitre et des expositions sur l'entourage du sculpteur et sa vie en général.

L'atelier du maitre
Reconstitué par la fondation du même nom, l'atelier du maitre est impressionnant de vie, et éclaire les conditions de la création dans un petit local du 14ème.
Réserver ses billets à la fondation sur internet avant de venir et choisir son créneau de visite. Original mais facile.
