About

Piero Manzoni: A Biography Through the Guido and Gabriella Pautasso Collection of Documents is curated by Guido Pautasso and Irene Stucchi. This iteration of the Book & Printed Matter Lab is dedicated to the work of seminal artist and progenitor of Conceptualism, Piero Manzoni, and compliments the exhibition, ‘Piero Manzoni. Materials of His Time’ on display in the South Gallery. The lab presents publications dedicated to the work of Manzoni as well as archival letters and manuscripts documenting the artist’s life and career.

The Book & Printed Matter Lab is a project devoted to exploring the important place that books and prints occupy in the practice of artists. Building upon Hauser & Wirth’s curatorial and publishing activities, the Lab presents thematic installations, displays, and programming that invite reflection, creative thinking, and further conversation about the world of printed matter and its connection to artists’ ideas and objectives.
