Thomas Gibson Fine Art will be opening an exhibition of Alberto Giacometti which will run concurrently with the much-anticipated show to be held at the Tate Modern. The show will run from May 10th to September 10th 2017.
Thomas Gibson has been one of the foremost advocates of Alberto Giacometti’s work over the last four decades. The gallery held its first major solo show of the artist’s work entitled Thirteen Bronzes in 1977. This exhibition was followed by a further solo show of Drawings, Paintings and Sculptures held in 1989. Again, in 2004 (this time in conjunction with Lefevre Gallery)Paintings and Drawings from Private Collections was the opening show at its new premises in Bruton Street. This was followed in 2012 by a solo show at the opening of the first Frieze Masters.
The current exhibition is co-curated by Thomas and Hugh Gibson, simply entitled A Tribute to A.G. and consists of four drawings, four bronzes, four paintings and a plaster, all of exceptional quality and some of which have seldom been seen before.
The works of art will be displayed in a minimal manner to encourage the viewer to concentrate and commune with each work individually.
A fully illustrated catalogue contains an accompanying poem by Grey Gowrie entitled Fanmail for Jack.
