THE STORY OF THE FOUNDATION
2022 THE DUTCH PAPERS AND GROUP SHOWS
IVAM of Valencia organized a major exhibition dedicated to the ZERO group with a susbtantial number of works by Piero on show. Manzoni was also among the artists present in the dual exhibition in Paris at the Jeu de Paume and LE BAL museums dedicated to the use of media – photography, film and video – by Italian artists in the 1960s and early ’70s.
The publishing company Abscondita published one of Piero Manzoni’s most extensive exchanges of letters, in this case with his Dutch “manager” Hans Sonnenberg. Through two critical texts and a comprehensive visual analysis with diverse previously unseen photos, the book explores the relationship between the artist and the Netherlands. Manzoni was a member of the Dutch Zero group and precociously entered several important local collections.Back
