In 1964 in Paris, the American writer James Lord sits for a portrait by Giacometti, sparking an offbeat friendship. Seen through the eyes of Lord, this film by Stanley Tucci is an insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and chaos of the artistic mind. ‘Final Portrait’ portrays a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly connected through the ever-evolving act of creativity. CinemArt is a film series presented by Hauser & Wirth in collaboration with Arthouse Zürich. A cinematic journey into the art world, this series offers unique views into the lives and work of significant international artists, including a selection connected to Hauser & Wirth’s programme. The selected documentaries feature artists and renowned art world figures including Eduardo Chillida, Peggy Guggenheim, Piet Oudolf, Fabio Mauri, Picasso, Joseph Beuys, Max Bill and Maria Lassnig.
