Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg Presents Alberto Giacometti The Origin of Space

Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg presents Alberto Giacometti The Origin of Space Retrospective of the mature work, open, 20 November 2010 – 6 March 2011.

For the first time in twelve years, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg presents the mature work of one of the most important artists of the twentieth century in Germany. The exhibition comprising circa sixty sculptures and thirty paintings as well as several drawings primarily explores the space-creating power of Alberto Giacometti’s (1901—1966) work. With his view of the relationship between space, time and figure, Giacometti can literally be characterized as the inventor of virtual space. Giacometti’s vision of inscribing his figures with their own inherent space and their own inherent temporality is now realized by means of an exhibition architecture that has been tailor-made for his sculptures.
