PIERO MANZONI. WHEN BODIES BECAME ART
Despite his short career, Piero Manzoni (1933?1963), who died an early death at the age of twenty-nine, is regarded as one of the most consequential representatives of Italian post-war art. The artist would have celebrated his eightieth birthday on July 13, 2013. The Städel will pay tribute to this key figure of the European avant-garde after 1945 with its exhibition "Piero Manzoni. When Bodies Became Art” to mark the occasion exactly fifty years after the artist’s death.
