Vernissage Maurizio Cattelan : All
Guggenheim Museum15.11.2011 #art
Orchestrated by Nancy Spector at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, this anti-retrospective presents 128 works by the Italian artist, suspended in the centre of Manhattan’s most famous building. Half box in a duchampian suitcase, half “salamis stall” – in Cattelan’s words – this chronicle of an announced retreat has hit the nail on the head and will be a landmark. To discover it, 300 hand-picked guests, from Pierre Huygues to Samuel Keller, Takashi Murakami or Marina Abramovic, the cream of contemporary art from around the world was present to celebrate this stroke of genius. Everyone continued the evening, perched at 360° on the roof of the Standard Hotel where MGMT took possession of the turntables and Disaronno of the bar. The Toilet Paper team in the lead, a magazine to which Maurizio Cattelan now devotes himself with the photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari.
