Last Chance: Maurizio Cattelan is Dead, Life & Work, 1960 - 2009

By Ken Johnson

A mock survey of the career of Mr. Cattelan, an international scenester known for his sculptures of Pope John Paul II struck down by a meteor and other outrages, this indifferently produced show is mainly in the form of a timeline with extensive biographical texts and photocopied images. It is surprisingly entertaining if you like to read on your feet, and it raises some good questions about art-world anthropology. Mr. Cattelan, by the way, is still with us.
