Item details
Tate exclusive black t-shirt featuring an image of Alberto Giacometti’s distinctive sculpture Man Pointing, 1947. Produced in the UK to accompany the Giacometti retrospective exhibition at Tate Modern.

Man Pointing 1947 was made very rapidly for Giacometti’s first exhibition in New York. He recalled: ‘I did that piece in one night between midnight and nine the next morning. That is, I’d already done it, but I demolished it and did it all over again because the men from the foundry were coming to take it away. And when they got here, the plaster was still wet.’ This piece is one of the key works that linked Giacometti’s sculptural works to Existentialism, with Jean-Paul Sartre describing it as ‘always halfway between nothingness and being.’
