Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti once bragged he could produce a work of art in just a night. But a major exhibition of his works at Paris' George Pompidou shows that to be untrue. The show aims ''to put the visitor in the workshop, to show them Giacometti's creative process and the perpetual progress of his work''.
A stone's throw from the Eiffel Tower on the banks of the Seine, the final touches are being put to Europe's newest museum, a huge project celebrating and bringing to life non-Western art and heritage. Named the Musee du Quai Branly after its location, the museum will house about 300Â 000 works of tribal art.
