Castellani & Manzoni

Manzoni, Piero & Enrico Castellani

Rome. Galleria La Tartaruga. 1961
The original poster / announcement for the joint Manzoni / Castellani exhibition at Galleria La Tartuga in Rome, 1961.

Opening on April 22nd, 1961, this joint exhibition with Enrico Castellani (the pair often exhibited together) saw Manzoni signing gallery visitors and models hired specifically for the purpose and issuing them with certificates. Manzoni thereby designated the people 'Sculture Vivendi' and assimilated them into his oeuvre. He also distributed his 'Carte d’Autenticità', a certificate that could be purchased that proved an individual a work or a part of a work depending on the price paid. We have been unable to determine the works exhibited by Castellani.
Single sheet. (305 x 340 mm). Printed text in black and red with graphic markings in black at right recto only on blue paper; the sheet has an old central fold, some toning to sheet edges and some wear at the foot.
