Fact and fiction collide in Maura Axelrod’s playful profile MAURIZIO CATTELAN: BE RIGHT BACK.
Q&A with director Maura Axelrod following the screening.
An art world upstart, provocative and elusive artist Maurizio Cattelan made his career on playful and subversive works that send up the artistic establishment, until a retrospective at the Guggenheim in 2011 finally solidified his place in the contemporary art canon. Axelrod’s equally playful profile leaves no stone unturned in trying to figure out: who is Maurizio Cattelan?
