RUI CHAFES AND ALBERTO GIACOMETTI

GRIS, VIDE, CRIS

3 OCTOBER - 16 DECEMBER 2018
Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation PARIS | PARIS, FRANCE

This highly original project explores the common lexicon of Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti (1901 - 1966) and contemporary Portuguese sculptor Rui Chafes (b. 1966), looking at themes such as timelessness, dematerialization and the void.

It will feature fifteen works by Alberto Giacometti, including eleven sculptures and four drawings. All of the sculptures by Rui Chafes, with the exception of a piece from 2015, have been specially created for this project.

The result of a challenge issued by Helena de Freitas, curator at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the exhibition will be held at the French Delegation of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation from 3rd October, with support from the Fondation Giacometti in Paris.
