Maurizio Cattelan: "All" @ the GuggenheimJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 30 Nov 2011
All is Maurizio Cattelan's retrospective exhibition with one hundred and twenty-eight of the Italian prankster's works, all hanging from the Guggenheim's rotunda. Some of our favorites include La Nona Ora which features Pope John Paul II struck down by a meteor, as well as Pinocchio floating face down, and a squirrel that has committed suicide by shooting itself at a break-room table. Cattelan's work is clever and humorous, and this retrospective provides an in depth look at the breadth of his work in an unusual but perfectly appropriate presentation. Read more about the artist and the exhibition at the Guggenheim site, and more importantly, go see it.
