New Year's Day at the Guggenheim

On a balmy New Year's Day 2012, we finally got around to visiting the Maurizio Cattelan retrospective installation at the Guggenheim. It was a lot of fun, and reminiscent of Banksy's sense of humor. All the work on display was hung from the Guggenheim's domed ceiling, and revealed itself as we ascended the spiral ramp. There's a time lapse movie of the exhibition being assembled here.

Cattelan has said that this exhibition and his recent commission at the Venice Biennale would be his final shows before he reinvents himself as a new artist. Surprisingly, we happened to see his Venice exhibit too this past summer: 2000 pigeons, watching your every move.
