Hailed simultaneously as a provocateur, prankster, and tragic poet of our times, Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan has created some of the most unforgettable images in recent contemporary art. Cattelan's source materials range widely, being derived from popular culture, history, and organized religion; while bold and irreverent, the work is also deadly serious in its scathing cultural critique. Maurizio Cattelan: All accompanies the retrospective survey of the artist, an exhibition that marks the first time that the entirety of his oeuvre will be assembled into a coherent exhibition narrative, with more than 130 works borrowed from private and public collections around the world. This volume catalogues nearly every work of Cattelan's from the late 1980s to the present within a double-column page format, reproducing the works in full color with accompanying entries by various authors. 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.
