Giacometti-Nauman

Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt

NOW CLOSED

Two artists, two gener­a­tions of rather differing prove­nance: Schirn Kunsthalle Frank­furt is dedi­cating a compre­hen­sive exhi­bi­tion to the surprising and previ­ously largely over­looked affini­ties in the work byAlberto Giacometti (1901–1966) and Bruce Nauman (b. 1941). Draw­ings, photographs, videos, sculp­tures and large-scale instal­la­tions by the US multi­media artist will enter into an exciting dialogue with selected sculp­tures and paint­ings by the Swiss sculptor.
