Monnaie de Paris will play host to the exhibition “Not Afraid of Love”- a series of artworks by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan from October 22, 2016 through January 8, 2017 at Paris, France.
Considered as his post-requiem venture, “Not Afraid of Love” is a unique show by Maurizio Cattelan where an intimate point of view of the artist is discovered through a specific layout and confrontation of his masterpieces. Dramatically different yet complementing his previous show at Guggenheim, the Paris event is not exhaustive, rather a quest for meaning within a narrative.
For the Monnaie de Paris exhibition, Cattelan will build something new from his existing works, creating surprise, awkwardness and fascination, making it the most interactive exhibition ever conceived by him. Cattelan’s works seizes and exalts the human condition, being an ode to the fragility of human beings, their contradictions, paradoxes, and the projection of their identity crisis. The exhibition will offer its viewers a new perspective on Cattelan’s work.
