There’s currently an interesting retrospective of the work of Italian satirical artist, Maurizio Cattelan, at the Guggenheim.  Normally, an exhibit of this nature would be called a “mid-career survey,” as the artist is still living, and certainly young enough that there’s still time for more great work to be seen.  However, Cattelan announced his intended retirement to coincide with the show’s opening.   He’s indicated his intention to devote his time to his collaborative publication, Toilet Paper.

We shall see…

My thoughts on the exhibit can be found here.

  1. Great to see the review and to hear more about Maurizio’s work. The L.O.V.E. image I read somewhere was not a definitive negative gesture.. though that is what appears obvious.
