London / Tate Modern Giacometti


Living through the 1920's, Alberto Giacometti was an Swiss sculptor who mixed and mingled with the famous clan of Paris-based artists and thinkers of the time, which also included Picasso and Simone de Beauvoir. The Tate Modern museum in London is hosting the largest UK-based retrospective of Giacometti's work in 20 years.

Celebrating movement through stillness, Giacometti's distinctive sculptures are both minimalist and impactful. My favourite room of the exhibit highlighted a few female studies, such as 'Walking Woman 1' (below, centre).
