Balanced Structures

School Groups
Primary School

Online

If we placed all our pencils on top of one another, would they stay balanced? Would you need more materials to keep them stable? In this workshop we will learn about scales and weighing machines and explore the materials used by architects and engineers in the past. After an online guided tour of the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Collection of Anatolian Weights and Measures, we will design durable structures that can stand upright, using toothpicks and colored play dough.

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.

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