Maurizio Cattelan

maurizio cattelan 04 surfaceandsurfaceRetrospective exhibition of controversial Italian born artist Maurizio Cattelan’s work at the Guggenheim, New York.  Famed for his disturbingly hyperrealistic sculptures, most notably that of Pope John Paul II killed off by a meteorite.

As the name alludes the exhibition contains ‘All’ Maurizio Cattelan’s work since 1989.

Hailed simultaneously as a provocateur, prankster, and tragic poet of our times, Maurizio Cattelan has created some of the most unforgettable images in recent contemporary art.
