The Latin word nullus roughly translates to “zero” or “none,” but by adding non to the end, it can mean “everything” (nullus non). This exhibition, inspired by the Latin and its uses (including in the pragmatic Dutch Nul Group), explores the use of white (or un-color) by artists Taizo Kuroda, Pierro Manzoni and Enrico Castellani. They see white as the signification of nullus or nothing; they ask, What goes beyond the material and verbal significance of nothing? The ceramicist Kuroda connects the conceptual to his ordinary objects; Manzoni, as Europe’s leading conceptual artist, will exhibit his painting series Achrome; and Castellani has developed his own series, coined his “light paintings.”
Pierro Manzoni’s work will be on view until July 30. Send an email to [email protected] to book a visit by 6 p.m. the day before your visit. Include your name, the number of visitors, your phone number, your preferred date and three choices for preferred time.
