Sometimes called tragic poet, prankster or provocateur, you can now decide for yourself when you visit the Maurizio Cattelan exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum.

Cattelan Exhibit at the Guggenheim

Cattelan takes his inspiration from the full range of life’s offerings, such as popular culture, history, organized religion and a deep look at the self, which is both humorous and profound. Many have described Cattelan’s style as hyper-realistic, creating overly truthful sculptures whose purpose is to point out contradictions which occupy the very heart of contemporary society.

Maurizio Cattelan’s artwork will be showing from November 4, 2011 to January 22, 2012 at the Guggenheim Museum on Fifth Avenue at 89th Street.
