Tate Modern, 10th May to 10th September

In 1956, Alberto Giacometti, the Swiss- French artist, produced a series of plaster heads for the Venice Biennale.

The show will reaffirm Giacometti’s status as one of the 20th century’s most significant artists, tracking his experiments in abstraction, surrealism and decorative art before he turned his focus to the human figure.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s May issue: Neal Ascherson, Simon Jenkins, John Curtice and Frances Cairncross examine the growing divide between England and Scotland. Ascherson argues that England has become Scotland’s “neurotic neighbour,” while Jenkins says we should learn from history and prepare for Scotland to leave the Union. Cairncross and Curtice debate whether Scotland could afford to break with England and whether a fresh referendum on independence is actually winnable. Also in this issue: Jason Burke questions whether the world will be a safer place after the downfall of Islamic State, Paul Hilder examines how politics got tangled in the web and Michael White reviews a new book charting the history of the Daily Mail
