A LINE THROUGH TIME

A LINE THROUGH TIME

Alberto Giacometti: A Line Through Time was an exhibition at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in April 2016.

This landmark exhibition was dedicated to the work of Alberto Giacometti, one of the giants of twentieth century art, celebrated as a sculptor, painter and draughtsman. The exhibition commemorated the 50th anniversary of the artist’s death and was an exciting opportunity to examine the artist’s influence amongst his contemporaries in Paris and his impact on British art in the post-war period.

Key themes included the artist’s sources of inspiration, the Sainsburys as patrons, his approach to materials and processes, and his influence on British artists. Over 100 works were featured in the exhibition in a variety of media including sculpture, painting, works on paper, photography, film and important archival material.
