Maurizio Cattelan at the Guggenheim

Posted in Museums, NYC by Andrew Spender on January 22, 2012

We all enjoyed the Guggenheim‘s exhibit of Maurizio Cattelan’s “All” this weekend. His sculptures, paintings, photographs and animals were suspended by rope at different heights from a rig within the atrium of the museum. The unique architecture of the Guggenheim allowed visitors to walk all around it in a spiral going up or down. Each angle and level provided a whole new perspective and revealed different pieces within the exhibit, like sleeping dogs, the skeleton of a ginormous fly, a child-size Hitler, the Pope crushed beneath a meteorite, a bemused donkey, an ox with motorbike handle horns, a 40ft table football game, President JKF in a coffin, a girl packaged in a freight box, a shrouded elephant or a hoisted horse. The list goes on.

Take a very close look at each photo (double-click them for a larger version) to see what you can find.
