On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of his death and the 90th anniversary of his birth, the artist’s work-one of the most important of the 20th century-comes to the Museum of Printing in Soncino, in the province of Cremona, where Piero was born in 1933.
Organized by the Piero Manzoni Foundation of Milan and the Pro Loco of Soncino, the exhibition “Relazioni (im)possibili” displays, alongside Achromes, Lines and Artist’s Shit, also works by artists of more recent generations who, in different ways, have continued in the conceptual groove traced by Manzoni.
And the names are important: Gianni Caravaggio, Fabio Roncato, Liliana Moro, Andrea Francolino, David Reimondo, just to name a few. Curated by Demis Martinelli and Rosalina Pasqualino di Marineo, the exhibition tries to bring out, in an obviously indirect way, that “Manzonian blood” that runs in the veins of the artists hosted and that also takes the form of a greater freedom that the curators have left in interpreting this relationship. With the result of having very different works, of proposing to visitors a variety of possible paths – or impossible ones, as the title suggests – that start from Piero’s lesson and arrive at the present day. The exhibition will be displayed until Oct. 1.
