The Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne is presenting the first museum exhibition in Switzerland of the work of Piero Manzoni (1933–1963). Centred on the Achromes – the white monochromes the artist worked on during his brief career (1957– 1963) – the exhibition comprises 70 outstanding works ranging from the famous wrinkled canvases to the final polystyrene pieces, not to mention his few sculptures and works on paper.
