If You Build It, He Will Come…and Then Leave, Slightly Offended and Confused
This is your last weekend to catch Maurizio Cattelan’s non sequitur menagerie of cheap thrills at the Guggenheim. The exhibition is wrought with controversial imagery intended to shock and affront. Particularly “scandalous” works include (but are not limited to) Cattelan’s Now (2004), a polyester resin and wax sculpture of JFK in a coffin, and La Nona Ora (1999), which depicts Pope John Paul II being struck down by a meteor. We all love a spectacle, so don’t miss this one. Maurizio Cattelan: All ends January 22.
