Conspicuous consumption, irresponsible greed and drug-taking are often thought of somehow as part of the 80s. The situation is a little different for the adult teenagers of Avalon − they’ve never left the eighties or their hedonistic lifestyles. Club promoter Janne has just finished serving time with an ankle bracelet and has reunited with his former business partner Klas. He is looking forward to the launch of their new high-end night club, Avalon. Janne is constantly accompanied by his recently divorced older sister Jackie. She tries to keep up the good spirit, recounting her brother’s career as a nightclub owner, realtor and general man about town. The good times seem to have returned, but when an unfortunate catastrophe occurs, Janne’s new life and nightclub dreams seem to be indefinitely put on hold.

Giacometti: Early Works

Giacometti: Early Works

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development.
