Maurizio Cattelan at the Guggenheim

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Maurizio Cattelan’s exihbit at the Guggenheim was an amazing hanging exhibit in the atrium. It is the first time that his work is shown together: Pope John Paul II struck by a meteorite, a hanging donkey, Hitler as a child kneeling, and other commentaries on the current state of affairs. Many of them are images of Cattelan himself.

The entire museum ramp was emptied so his work could viewed from a distanc. This is where this kind of atrium museum excels in having the opportunity to hang such a unique installation.
