A new permanent collection installation greeted visitors to the Phillips last week right when they walked through the double glass doors into the galleries. What’s on view? A 1960 sculpture by Alberto Giacometti, a 1952 painting by Francis Bacon, a 2001 photograph by James Casebere, and a 1988 sculpture by Juan Hamilton. This group of works will remain on view throughout the winter.
How wonderful. How often do we get to see a Giacometti and a Juan Hamilton in the same room.
No kidding! It was a delight to see these works come together. Another post is coming soon about the selection process for this particular gallery installation.
