From May 9 to September 10, 2017, Tate Modern will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first exhibition of Alberto Giacometti, held in this gallery. The curators were granted unlimited access to the exclusive collection and archive of the Foundation, which bears the name of the artist and his wife. The exposition of "Giacometti" will trace the artist's work from the first surrealistic compositions to the formation of a mature style: visitors will see both famous bronze sculptures and little-known works from plaster, oil paintings and drawings.

The Tate Modern curators could not overlook the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution, which triggered a wave of innovative ideas and designs. The vernissage of rare posters and photographs “Red Star over Russia” (from November 8, 2017 to February 18, 2018) will cover five decades, during which Russian and Soviet artists created the country's unique visual identity - from the first revolution of 1905 to Stalin’s death in 1953 .
