A visit to Maurizio Cattelan exhibition at La Monnaie de Paris


Dear Diane, dear Shaded Viewers,

I got to the Cattelan exhibition before heading down south to have a look on what he did at La Monnaie de Paris and I was really disappointed.

On one side, I still had in mind the fantastic show McCarthy did last year so I was hopping for an effort beyond setting pieces here and there. And also I like Cattelan, but to be honest, this show is so avoidable that I decided to post it so you don’t even need to go.

The selection is obvious with very little curatorship behind and doesn’t add anything to what we already know about the italian artist.
