By attending a 3D tour of And Now the Good News: Works from the Nobel Collection exhibition, which features over 400 works by 164 artists who have used a variety of media, such as painting, photography, collage, drawing, installation, and video, participants have the opportunity to view the most important periods of modern and contemporary art. Then, under the guidance of Bager Akbay, an artist known for his many works on physical interaction, artificial intelligence and art, we attend a workshop on the Scratch platform. Using visuals, texts or sounds we have produced or found elsewhere, we code our own work of art, deriving inspiration from some of the Dadaist work that captured our attention in the exhibition.

Giacometti in Paris

Giacometti in Paris

The second part of exhibition illustrates Alberto Giacometti’s relations with Post-Cubist artists and the Surrealist movement between 1922 and 1935, one of the important sculptures series he created during his first years in Paris, and the critical role he played in the art scene of the period.

Giacometti & the Human Figure

Giacometti worked nonstop on his sculptures, either from nature or from memory, trying to capture the universal facial expressions.

Giacometti was selected for three important retrospectives at the New York Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Gallery in London and the Louisiana Museum of Art in Denmark, all of which were a great success.
