Maurizio Cattelan - All

Maurizio Cattelan - All

Spanish artist Maurizio Cattelan is having quite a year.  His recent (and possibly final) exhibit “All” recently closed at the Guggenheim Museum in New York and it was quite a spectacle.  Rather than place the objects of the exhibit on the walls, Cattelan did something completely outside of the box (so to speak).  His art was suspended from the ceiling of the Guggenheim!  Like most people that saw “All,” I spent most of the time wondering how in the world they pulled that off.  There were, I’d estimate, close to 100 objects and many of them looked extremely heavy.  The band MGMT was so moved by the exhibit, they wrote a 40 minute piece of music which was performed only twice when the exhibit was showing last year.  Maurizio was out and about on a night of art openings and I met him.  We had a very funny encounter.  We were at an extremely crowded Marilyn Minter opening and a crowd had gathered outside to get some fresh air.  Unfortunately, it was raining so we had to retreat in a vacant parking lot next door.  When I asked Maurizio for a photo he happily obliged and then joked that he was unable to stand still.  He was not having it any other way, which was amusing to me as that was a first for me in all my artist/rock star encounters – and you know that I’ve had hundreds!  Considering the circumstances, I got a pretty decent photo, I’d say.

Come on art wankers, weigh in on these pretty bold statements from Roberta Thorn.  One of these statements made me shout out “Amen!” on the streets of New York, I’ll tell you that much!
