Giacometti – Smith

06 February – 11 April 2015

Gallery Hours:
Tue-Fri: 10:00-18:00
Sat: 11:00-15:00


Through a small group of sculptures made in the 1950s we will present a glimpse of the work of two giants of 20th century sculpture: Alberto Giacometti and David Smith. These two, very different, contemporaries who both lived and worked in a kind of self-imposed isolation at the same time, but on different sides of the Atlantic, were arguably the two foremost pioneers of modern sculpture in Europe and America during the immediate post-war era.
