Curator Philipp Kaiser has invited artists Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler and Carol Bove to show their work in the exhibition Women of Venice at the Swiss pavilion at the 57th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. With the project, Kaiser aims to explore Alberto Giacometti’s little known absence in the history of the Swiss pavilion in Venice. During his lifetime, Giacometti declined all requests for him to exhibit his work there. Set in the Swiss pavilion, which was designed in 1952 by Alberto’s youngest brother and renowned architect Bruno Giacometti, the exhibition features new work by Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler and Carol Bove, created specifically for this year's edition of the Venice Biennale in reference to the legacy and universe of Alberto Giacometti.
