Join artist and lecturer Nick Pearson on a virtual gallery tour of Giacometti.

Friday 10 July


£20 (£30 for two on one email account and sharing one screen).

Giacometti’s exhibition was shown at the Tate Modern May-September 2017.

Giacometti was a sculptor, painter and draughtsman. His distinctive elongated figures are some of the most instantly recognizable works of modern art. His place as one of the great painter-sculptors of the 20th century was underlined by Tate Modern’s ambitious and wide-ranging exhibition. It showcased Giacometti’s career across five decades and how it evolved. You saw his early works, Surrealist period and the iconic bronze figure sculptures such as Walking Man I, 1960.

Nick’s virtual gallery tour of Giacometti is an illustrated slide lecture via Zoom. If you sign up, he sends you a pdf with high-resolution images so you can easily follow during his lecture. Nick projects the images on his studio wall and refers to them during his lecture to make it as much like a live experience as possible.

The two hour tour and Nick’s notes (emailed afterwards) costs £20 (£30 for two sharing an email account and screen.

About the Tutor
