A brilliant experimenter and provocateur, in his very short life Piero Manzoni (Soncino, 1933-Milan, 1963) created the foundations for the development of different artistic trends, both Italian and international, after the Second World War.
Starting from some intuitions of Marcel Duchamp, Manzoni proposed through his works a careful reflection on the role of the artist and the meaning of the work in contemporary art.
The exhibition organized by the Museo Madre in Naples is the largest retrospective of Piero Manzoni ever realized, with over 200 works, photographs, videos, magazines and autograph manuscripts.
Curated by Germano Celant, it offers the opportunity to retrace the creative adventure of Manzoni through the different phases of his short but intense career, from the beginnings of 1956 to 1963, the year of his premature death.
