The Institut Giacometti is the reference place in Paris for the famous Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966), who lived and worked for forty years in Montparnasse, in a studio situated at 46 rue Hippolyte-Maindron.
This studio has been permanently re-located within the Institute, with all the original elements: painted walls, sculptures, tools, and personal objects of the artist.
The temporary exhibitions, which are renewed four times a year, bring Giacometti's work into conversation with that of other artists or writers, or explore particular themes in his work, drawing on the large collection of works and archives of the Fondation Giacometti.
An intimate museum with a surface area of 350m², the Institute occupies a private mansion designed in 1914 by the decorator Paul Follot in an art nouveau - art deco style. The tapestries, stained glass windows, woodwork, mosaics and ironwork of this historic monument were restored during the renovation work.
Visitors can linger in the Institute's library, which includes books on modern art (freely available) and the personal books Alberto Giacometti (reserved for researchers).
A few steps away is the Giacometti Lab, a space dedicated to educational and cultural activities, where conferences, courses and workshops for all audiences are scheduled.

The Institut Giacometti can be visited without prior reservation at the on-site ticket office (by credit card only) or by booking through the online ticketing service.
