1 First Retrospective of Opening November 4 at the Guggenheim Entire Body of Work Suspended in Guggenheim Rotunda as a Site-Specific Installation Exhibition: : All Venue: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue, New York Dates: November 4, 2011 January 22, 2012 Media Preview: November 3, 10 am 1 pm (NEW YORK, NY October 3, 2011) The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presents Maurizio Cattelan: All, the first retrospective of the internationally acclaimed artist s work, from November 4, 2011, to January 22, Hailed simultaneously as a provocateur, prankster, and tragic poet of our times, (b. 1960, Padua, Italy) has created some of the most unforgettable images in recent contemporary art. His source materials range widely, from popular culture, history, and organized religion to a meditation on the self that is at once humorous and profound. Working in a vein that can be described as hyperrealist, Cattelan creates unsettlingly veristic sculptures that reveal contradictions at the core of today s society. While bold and irreverent, the work is also deadly serious in its scathing critique of authority and the abuse of power. : All brings together some 130 works examples of virtually everything the artist has produced since 1989 and presents the works en masse, strung seemingly haphazardly from the oculus of the museum s rotunda in a site-specific installation. An interactive, multimedia mobile app the first the Guggenheim has ever produced will offer both museum visitors and users off-site an enhanced experience of the exhibition that includes images, texts about the works, and video commentary by many of the artist s key collaborators. In addition to a fully illustrated catalogue, a new edition of Cattelan s magazine Toilet Paper, featuring images conceived and photographed by Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, will be presented on the occasion of the exhibition. : All is organized by Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. The Leadership Committee for : All is gratefully acknowledged.
2 Exhibition Overview Cattelan s career resists summation by any traditional exhibition format, said Spector. Many of his early, action-based meditations are impossible to reconstruct, and his singular, iconic objects function best in isolation. : All is thus a full-scale admission of the inadvisability of viewing his work within the context of a conventional chronological retrospective. The artist has resisted this model, creating instead a site-specific installation that cunningly celebrates its rebelliousness. Perversely encapsulating Cattelan s career to date in an overly literal, three-dimensional catalogue raisonné, the installation lampoons the idea of comprehensiveness. Cattelan s youth in the Italian city of Padua was marked by economic hardship at home, punishment at school, and a string of unfulfilling, menial jobs. These early experiences instilled in him an abiding mistrust of authority and a disdain for the drudgery of labor that haunts much of his early production. He describes his work from the late 1980s and early 1990s as being about the impossibility of doing something about insecurity, about failure. His pronounced anxiety about not succeeding was manifested in a series of performative escape routes from his artistic obligations. Bereft of ideas for his first solo exhibition in 1989, Cattelan simply closed the gallery and hung a sign reading Torno subito, or Be back soon. His early contributions to group shows were equally delinquent: in 1992, his participation in an exhibition at the Castello di Rivara near Turin consisted of a rope of knotted bed sheets dangling from an open window (Una Domenica a Rivara [A Sunday in Rivara]), while his response to the pressure of exhibiting at the Venice Biennale was to lease his allotted space to an advertising agency, which installed a billboard promoting a new perfume (Working Is a Bad Job, 1993). Cattelan s disruptive and disrespectful gestures have at times taken the form of creative theft and even overtly criminal activity. For an exhibition at the de Appel arts center in Amsterdam, he stole the entire contents of another artist s show from a nearby gallery with the idea of passing it off as his own work (Another Fucking Readymade, 1996), until the police insisted he return the loot on threat of arrest. Cattelan s anarchist streak extends to works that revolve around issues of his Italian identity and the tensions of the country s ever-shifting political landscape. In response to a wave of xenophobic sentiment, he formed a soccer team composed entirely of North African immigrants who played in both outdoor competitions and in exhibition settings on an elongated foosball table (Stadium, 1991). Their uniforms bore the emblem Rauss, which recalled the Nazi phrase Juden raus, or Jews get out. Cattelan has also turned to his own distinctive features as a mainstay of his iconography, constructing a series of sculptural vignettes that promote his image as an Everyman, playing the part of the fool so that we don t have to. Notable examples include La Rivoluzione siamo noi (We are the revolution, 2000), which presents a diminutive Cattelan dangling by his collar from a metal coat rack, impudently dressed in the signature felt suit of German artist Joseph Beuys, and a 2001 installation created for the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam that depicts the artist peering mischievously from a hole in the floor at a gallery of Old Master paintings. Some of Cattelan s surrogates have been more allusive, such as the 2008 work Daddy Daddy, an installation first shown in the fountain on the Guggenheim s rotunda floor, that depicts the puppet Pinocchio another rebellious Italian boy with an oversized nose floating facedown as if the victim of a tragic tumble from the ramps above. Although an ironic humor threads much of his work, a profound meditation on mortality forms the core of Cattelan s practice. His recurring use of taxidermy, which presents a state of apparent life
3 premised on actual death, is particularly apt for exploring this thematic concern. Perhaps the most poignant of his anthropomorphic animal scenes is Bidibidobidiboo (1996), in which a despairing squirrel has committed suicide in his grimy kitchen. Death stalks the artist s psyche and creeps into all manifestations of his production. With All (2007), he created what he described as a monument to death, a sculpture that would commemorate its unrelenting presence. Derived from ubiquitous media imagery of fallen bodies, and carved from traditional marble, the nine shrouded figures appear as victims of some unnamed trauma, silently recalling the unconscionable realities of our present-day world. Among Cattelan s most startling projects is a cycle of lifelike waxworks that portray and contest iconic authority figures. The most incendiary of these works comprise La Nona Ora (The ninth hour, 1999), his notorious sculpture of Pope John Paul II felled by a meteorite, and Him (2001), a rendering of Adolf Hitler in the scale of a young boy, kneeling preposterously in a pose of supplication. Also included is the sculpture Frank and Jamie (2002), in which two New York City policemen are turned upside down and propped against a wall in a posture that has been interpreted as a visual parallel to the sense of vulnerability that permeated the country in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, A more overtly elegiac scene is constructed by Now (2004), an effigy of a serene and barefoot John F. Kennedy lying in state, a martyr to a shattered American idealism seen from the perspective of a disillusioned present. The Installation The dramatic site-specific installation is visible to visitors on the ground floor and on each ascending ramp at varied heights. Hoisted by rope as if on a gallows, the objects explicitly reveal the undertone of death that pervades the artist s work. The exhibition is an exercise in disrespect: the artist has hung up his work like laundry to dry. Like all of his individual objects, the new installation resonates with multiple interpretive valences. Cattelan has certainly used the motif of suspension before, most notably in the poetically elongated sculpture created from a taxidermied horse, Novecento (1997), but here it takes on epic proportions. In total, the installation looks like a mass execution and will, for the duration of the exhibition, constitute an overarching, tragic artwork in its own right. Artist s Retirement More than just a powerful culmination of a career, this exhibition signifies its end. With the opening of : All, Cattelan has announced his retirement from the art world. What this means precisely remains to be defined by the artist. Over time we expect to see a continuation of his work with the publication Toilet Paper as part of his fascination with print media. But the rest is anyone s guess. Exhibition Funding The Leadership Committee for : All is gratefully acknowledged. Founding Members: Steven A. and Alexandra M.

4 Mobile App For the first time in its history, the Guggenheim has produced a mobile app to accompany an exhibition the interactive, multiplatform : All. The app features dramatic views of the Guggenheim installation and provides extensive documentation of Cattelan s artworks, actions, and other projects, both enriching the experience of visiting the exhibition and offering a dynamic exploration of it outside the museum s walls. In short videos, filmmaker John Waters introduces the app and its sections. Exhibition curator Nancy Spector presents an illuminating examination of Cattelan s oeuvre, while exhibition engineers and artwork conservators offer a behind-the-scenes look at putting the show together. In more than 20 video interviews some shot by the subjects themselves a career s worth of Cattelan s friends and associates speak about the artist and his creative process. Contributors include critic Vince Aletti; artist Carsten Höller; curators Francesco Bonami, Germano Celant, Bice Curiger, Massimiliano Gioni, and Chrissie Iles; and gallerists Marian Goodman, Massimo De Carlo, and Emmanuel Perrotin. Listen to audio clips of Cattelan s own reflections on his works read by Waters, and enjoy additional highlights including images from issues of the artist s new magazine, Toilet Paper, plus a special preview of its latest edition, created on the occasion of the retrospective. The app will be available on iphone, ipad, and Android at $3.99 for phone and $5.99 for tablet at guggenheim.org/cattelan-app. Catalogue The retrospective will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue conceived as a play on the traditional catalogue raisonné, featuring nearly every work of Cattelan s from the late 1980s to the present, with accompanying interpretive entries. The volume includes a detailed critical overview by Nancy Spector, documenting not only Cattelan s artistic output but also his ongoing activities as a curator, editor, and publisher, as well as a comprehensive exhibition history and bibliography. The catalogue will be available in hardcover and e-book editions for $45 and $19.99 at the Guggenheim Store (hardcover only) or online at guggenheimstore.org.

For tickets, visit guggenheim.org/publicprograms, or call the Box Office at Public Program Hyperrealism in Contemporary Art Wed, Dec 7, 6:30 pm Scholars discuss concepts of realism in contemporary art, focusing on verisimilitude as a central aesthetic and conceptual strategy in Cattelan s work and its role in his critical practice. Participants include Dorothea von Hantelmann (Freie Universität, Berlin), Alexander Potts (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor), and Nancy Spector. Reception follows. $10, $7 members, free for students with RSVP. For tickets, visit guggenheim.org/publicprograms, or call the Box Office at Public Program The Last Word Sat, Jan 22, 6 pm 1 am is retiring from art-making with his current retrospective. To mark the end of the exhibition (and the beginning of retirement), twenty or so prominent artists, philosophers, writers, comedians, filmmakers, actors, musicians, and more will come together to contemplate the end. More than just some winter morbidity, this event tackles that most difficult moment: to decide when to stop one thing and begin another or to end it altogether. Less strenuous than a long distance event and much more than a quick sprint, this event will be a meditative seven hour jog around life's central park of pleasures, desires, and regrets. Co-organized by Simon Critchley (Ph.D., Professor of Philosophy, The New School of Social Research), and Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, and curator of : All. For more information, visit guggenheim.org/publicprograms. Admission: pay what you wish. About the Solomon R.

12 Throughout his career, (b. 1960, Padua, Italy) has used the exhibition format as a mode of artistic expression. Since his first solo show in 1989, in which he hung a sign saying Be right back on a locked gallery door (Torno subito, 1989), Cattelan s preoccupation with the possibility of failure has led him to concoct a series of ingenious ways to avoid the burden of production and complicate access to his creative output. Subsequent strategies of evasion have included displaying an authentic police report that documented the fictional theft of an invisible artwork (Untitled, 1991); bricking up the entrance to a gallery so that visitors could only glimpse its contents a small mechanical bear on a tightrope through a window (Untitled, 1993); creating an exact replica of another artist s show at a nearby gallery (Moi-même-soi-même, 1997); and dressing his gallerists in absurd costumes that transformed them into live artworks (Tarzan & Jane, 1993; Errotin, le vrai lapin, 1995; and Untitled, 1999). At times, Cattelan has eschewed the exhibition context altogether, focusing on collaborations such as the magazines Charley ( ), Permanent Food ( ), and Toilet Paper (2010 ) and outlandish curatorial projects ranging from a feigned biennial on the island of Saint Kitts (6th Caribbean Biennial, 1999) to a miniature art gallery in a sealed-off single square foot of space (The Wrong Gallery, ). For this project at the Guggenheim, Cattelan has simultaneously embraced and subverted the notion of an exhaustive survey exhibition. The site-specific installation All radically upends the ordered hierarchies and conventional viewing conditions of the museum retrospective by suspending his entire body of work in a disorientating, seemingly haphazard mass in the center of the building s Frank Lloyd Wright designed rotunda. This unorthodox presentation, which is visible to visitors from the ground floor and from each ascending ramp, brings together almost every work the artist has created since 1989, including sculptures, paintings, photographs, and works on paper, in a sculptural environment that functions as a unified artwork in its own right. This schematic drawing of the installation identifies each object in the exhibition. For more extensive documentation of Cattelan s artworks, actions, and other projects, a multimedia mobile app is available for download at guggenheim.org/cattelan-app. Introduced by filmmaker John Waters, the app includes an overview of the artist s career, detailed texts on every work in the exhibition, behindthe-scenes footage of the installation, and video commentary by many of Cattelan s key associates.
