This is a first chance to get a good look at the work of Alberto Giacometti here in Brazil, in the form of an important retrospective of the Swiss artist’s oeuvre – namely his striking sculptures of roughly hewn, elongated human figures. In all of Brazil’s permanent museum collections, there is only one Giacometti – that’s at the MAM in Rio de Janeiro; so the arrival at Pinacoteca of more than 280 works from the Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti in Paris is a significant event in the art community in São Paulo and, indeed, beyond.

This exhibition follows Giacometti’s artistic evolution, from his childhood paintings to his discovery of African art following his move to Paris. It continues through through his experimentation with cubism and surrealism and on to his fixation with the radical representation of the human form – this latter being the period in which Giacometti produced his most important works.
