Maurizio Cattelan - Off The Wall

If you want to see Maurizio Cattelan's grand finale, now is the time (since, for those of you who didn't get the memo, the artist has decided to retire after this show). At the Guggenheim Museum in NYC, Cattelan has 130 works displayed... yet none of which are on the wall. 

Using the Guggenheim's particular architecture to his advantage, the artist strung up his work from the centre of the atrium's ceiling so that visitors can see the whole exhibition by walking up the infamous spiral ramp.

If you've never seen Cattelan's work, it's kind of like if Ron Mueck had a dream about Dali's paintings while being on laughing gas. Hyperrealist/surrealist sculptures that exude dark humor. This retrospective is not to be missed!

"Maurizio Cattelan: All," Nov. 4, 2011-Jan. 22, 2012, at the Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10128.
