Enter the mind of modernist sculptor Alberto Giacometti in his search for a new vision of the human form.

Co-organized by the Fondation Giacometti in Paris, this special exhibition marks Giacometti’s first exhibition in the Pacific Northwest and the only West Coast stop on its North American tour.
