In our next Hiwar Art Club meetup we invite you to the conclusion of our January program, titled: “Primitive Traces in Modern and Contemporary Art”. We will be watching a screening of the drama film “Final Portrait” about the life and works of world renowned artist Alberto Giacometti.

Film plot: year 1964 in Paris, artist Alberto Giacometti asks American critic James Lord to be a model for his latest portrait. This begins their off-beat friendship where the artist gives his friend an insight into the profundity and chaos of the artistic process while finishing one of his latest masterpieces.

The screening is in English and it is 1:30 hr long, to be followed by a group discussion. Join us at 6 PM, Saturday 26/1/2019 At the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts – building #2.

From the meet-up at the gallery where Hiwar Art Club in collaboration with the Embassy of Switzerland organized the screening of the film “Final Portrait” about the life and works of renowned artist Alberto Giacometti. A beautiful and interesting film depicting the depth and chaos of the creative process of the artist as he finishes one of his last masterpieces.
The Ambassador of Switzerland in Jordan Mr. Lukas Gasser attended the event and seized the occasion to hand over a book about the life and work of Alberto Giacometti intended for the Gallery’s library to Director General Dr. Khalid Khreis. The screening was followed with discussions between Jordanian artists, art students, Swiss citizens and other participants.

Special thanks to the Swiss Embassy for their beautiful participation and to everyone who joined us
