Maurizio Cattelan's work has been important to the recent history of the Guggenheim. We are grateful recipients of the gift of ‘Comedian’, a further demonstration of the artist's deft connection to the history of modern art. Beyond which it offers little stress to our storage.
It has been nearly one year since we presented Maurizio Cattelan’s 'Comedian' on Perrotin’s Art Basel booth. We are so fortunate that it has entered into one of the world’s most prestigious collections, and I am humbled by the thoughtful words from Guggenheim director Richard Armstrong as well as the New York Times articles that have outlined the art historical importance of the work. It is a singular piece of conceptual art and I am so proud to see that conviction echoed by so many. I am so happy for Maurizio and proud of all that we have accomplished throughout nearly three decades.
