Maurizio Cattelan

Maurizio Cattelan's retrospective titled "all" at the Guggenheim looks incredible.  It is a collection of his work since 1989. He really topped himself by turning his show into a piece in and of itself.  "Whoa"  was probably my first reaction to it and it still is.  Though some critics seem to be reading into it as a hanging or death to all of his work.  I find it quite humorous in the most shocking way. Either way you look at it, its a good example of a simple idea that is well executed that can drop jaws.  Wish I had the chance to see this show in person.
