The Contemporary Art Gallery Hauser and Wirth are pleased to present two parallel exhibitions dedicated to Piero Manzoni, the foundational figure of post-war Italian art and the progenitor of conceptualism. During a short but influential career, which ended after his untimely death in 1963, Manzoni turned from a self-taught artist into an abstract artist, into an artistic destroyer.
Exhibition"Lines" unfolds on two floors of the gallery and focuses on the most significant works of Manzoni: his series "Achrome" (paintings without color) and "Line" (lines). The presentation of Manzoni’s works continues on the third floor of the Line exhibition, in which more than 35 works are presented, which constitute his most thoughtful and serialized studies.
In the gallery on the second floor exposure "Materials of his time"There are more than 70 radical Manchoni achromas and an artist’s revolutionary approach to non-traditional materials: cotton balls, fiberglass, buns, synthetic and natural fur. , straw, cobalt chloride, polystyrene, stones and more.
