Alberto Giacometti

17 April – 29 June 1997

The exhibition – which was the artist’s first museum exhibition in Munich – comprised around 150 exhibits. Most of them came either from the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, which owns one of the most important Alberto Giacometti collections, or from the holdings of the Maeght family of art dealers in Paris. Other important loans were kindly provided by major European museums, such as the Moderna Museet in Stockholm or the Centre Pompidou in Paris.


Special care was taken with the exhibition furnishings. A huge white velum bathed the Kunsthalle in a soft light. This not only gave the exhibits the necessary radiant space; it also enabled sculpture, painting, and drawing to enter into a lively dialogue that repeatedly encouraged visitors to make insightful comparisons.

The concept for the exhibition came from the Swiss art historian Rudolf Koella, who was also responsible for editing the catalog. The exhibition was furnished by the Munich architect Peter Strassl.
