Following a sensational launch at the Tate Modern in London, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) is proud to announce with great fanfare the North American premiere in Québec City of the Alberto Giacometti exhibition. From February 8 to May 13, Protected content , visitors can discover this major retrospective presented by Desjardins in the Pierre Lassonde Pavilion of the MNBAQ and appreciate the emblematic work of one of the 20th century's foremost artists.

Giacometti is known for his unique sculptures of inordinately elongated subjects or threadlike figures with especially detailed surfaces, but the exhibition will also celebrate the painter. The Québec City exhibition will feature paintings and original plaster casts, including several never before exhibited.
