“In the past two weeks, I have been focused on experimenting with new concepts for a major art exhibition about Alberto Giacometti.

It will be presented at the Guggenheim in New York in 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are unique characteristics of his work, such as the different scales of his sculptures and the immersive process of his work. These characteristics pose an interesting design challenge for me in helping with this exhibition.

Furthermore, the opportunity to work with the artwork of such a peculiar artist in the Guggenheim, an iconic architectural museum, stimulates interdisciplinary discussions on how art and architecture complement and question each other. Thus, because of this complex design process I have been spending most of my time in collaboration on this project.

 

 

 

This last Friday, we had the opportunity to visit the David Zwirner Gallery.  Lucas Zwirner presented his charity project to help a specific area in Africa. We had the opportunity to talk to him and understand the whole and lengthy process to organize and involve famous artists in this project. It was an inspiring discussion.”
