Mazzoleni is pleased to announce its participation in Art Basel’s European edition for the first time this June with a solo presentation of Piero Manzoni (1933–1963) in the Feature sector of the fair.
Manzoni is widely considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Known for his ironic and playful methodology, he radically transformed the artistic language of European art and developed a lasting reputation for prefiguring the Conceptual Art movement.
This exhibition will show examples from two of the artist’s most well known series of works, the Achromes (1957–1963) and the Linee (1959– 1963). It follows the gallery’s acclaimed 2016 exhibition of the artist at its London space, Piero Manzoni. Achromes: Linea Infinita, which was the first exhibition to focus uniquely on the relationship between these two bodies of work.
