Film Screening: Maurizio Cattelan – Be Right Back – 16 September, 8.00 p.m.

An art world upstart, provocative and elusive artist Maurizio Cattelan made his career on playful and subversive works that send up the artistic establishment

Filmmaker Maura Axelrod fascinatingly excavates Maurizio Cattelan’s disruptive and indelible career as the preminent art-world prankster of our time, interviewing curators, collectors and ex-girlfriends on what makes this most compelling of conceptual visionaries tick. Like the best mysteries, viewers emerge from this dizzying journey knowing everything and nothing about a man who, from his professional inception, ushered us into a dazzling hall of mirrors that enchants and perplexes to this day. Cattelan shook up the contemporary art world beginning in the late 1980s with a series of action-based installations including his first solo show in Milan, ‘Torno Subito (Be Right Back)’. Over his twenty-year career, he continued to provoke and inspire, culminating in an all encompassing installation and retirement in 2011.
