1960 EXHIBITION IN ITALY AND ALL OVER THE WORLD
In this period there was also a form of overtly Dada “non-exhibition” promoted by the editor of the magazine Panderma Carl Laszlo, which left a trace in the “Manifesto contro niente per l’esposizione internazionale di niente” (Manifesto against Nothing for the International Exposition of Nothing), published in Basel: “Sale of nothing, numbered and signed. The price list is available to the public. At the inauguration no one will speak. Nothing is reproduced in this catalogue.” It was signed by Laszlo, Manzoni, Castellani, Mack, Piene and others.
On the 16th of July, he exhibited with Castellani, Fontana and others in the entrance to the XII Milan Triennale, the display being curated by Ettore Sottsass Jr. On the 30th of July, he was instead with Castellani, Dada Maino, Pisani and Santini in a group show at the Circolo degli Artisti at Albisola and on the 8th of October with Biasi, Bonalumi, Dada Maino, Massironi and Santini in Riducibili curated by Topazia Alliata at the Galleria Trastevere in Rome.
On the 11th of November, he was at the International Abstract Painting Exhibition at the Shen Sheng Pao Press Building in Taipei with, among others Castellani, Santini, Mack, Piene, Breier, Holweck, Mavignier, Uecker and Tinguely.Back
