THE STORY OF THE FOUNDATION
2016 MAJOR EXHIBITION IN LAUSANNE
The exhibition Achrome. Piero Manzoni, la peinture sans couleur at the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne was curated by Camille Léveque-Claudet and Choghakate Kazarian.
Among the events organized during the exhibition was a wine-tasting visit entitled Manzoni’s Fifty Shades of White, in which Jérôme Aké Béda, a well-known Swiss sommelier, led the participants in a tasting of Chasselas white wines, surrounded by Manzoni’s Achromes. The exhibition was also the setting for a concert of 20th century Italian music.
The London branch of Mazzoleni Arte staged the solo show Piero Manzoni. Achromes: Linea infinita, with a catalogue published by Carlo Cambi and edited by Gaspare Luigi Marcone.Back
