Giacometti: Without End is published on the occasion of an exhibition at Gagosian Gallery, Hong Kong, organized in collaboration with the Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti.
The catalogue centres on a set of 150 lithographs made by Giacometti that focus on cafes, boulevards, and his own atelier in his beloved Paris.
The fully illustrated catalogue provides thorough documentation of the Paris sans fin suite, including artist proofs and carbon transfer papers that document the artist's process, as well as a selection of related sculptures and paintings.
The book also includes two small booklets that fit inside the front and back covers.
One is a small facsimile of the book of Paris sans fin prints, 150 total, and the second booklet is a small facsimile of the entire preparatory maquette for the project.
Exhibition curator and art historian Veronique Wiesinger has written a substantial text that will appear alongside texts by two Chinese artists: Szeto Lap and Shen Yuan.
All text will appear in English as well as Chinese.
