The Vancouver Art Gallery presents its headline exhibition this summer, Alberto Giacometti: A Line Through Time on now until September 29, 2019. This wide- ranging exhibition of paintings, sculptures, drawings and lithographs by Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) examines the pre-and post-war career of one of the greatest sculptors of the first half of the twentieth century.
Alberto Giacometti: A Line Through Time
Presented on the Gallery’s first floor, it showcases Giacometti’s works alongside the ancient sculptures that served his imagination, and works by famed artists with whom he was in dialogue.
In 2016, the Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts in Norwich commemorated the 50th anniversary of Giacometti’s death with A Line Through Time, which was named by The Telegraph as one of the top exhibitions of that year.
Here are some additional art exhibitions and more on now at the Vancouver Art Gallery:

Vikky Alexander: Extreme Beauty is the first retrospective of this notable Canadian artist whose work interrogates the mechanisms of display that shape meaning, beauty and desire in our culture. Comprising more than 80 works in a variety of media, Extreme Beauty examines the major themes that have occupied Alexander for more than three decades of her career, including the appropriated image, the artificiality of nature and the seduction of space.
