Maurizio Cattelan

Blenheim Palace, Woodstock

12 Sep - 27 Oct 2019

Maurizio Cattelan’s sculpture America (2016), a notorious satire of opulence and wealth disparity in the form of an 18-carat, fully functional gold toilet, is to be installed next to the room in which Winston Churchill was born, as part of Blenheim Art Foundation’s latest effort to bring contemporary artwork into dialogue with the lavish surroundings of the 18th-century palace in Oxfordshire. The Italian conceptual artist’s first solo show in the UK for two decades also includes hyperrealistic sculptures produced throughout his career, and new commissions. Find out more from Blenheim Art Foundation’s website.
