Guggenheim Museum Releases Mobile App for Maurizio Cattelan Exhibition

For the first time in its history, the Guggenheim has produced a mobile app to accompany an exhibition—the interactive, multiplatform Maurizio Cattelan: All. The app features dramatic views of the Guggenheim installation and provides extensive documentation of Cattelan’s artworks, actions, and other projects, both enriching the experience of visiting the exhibition and offering a dynamic means to explore it outside the museum’s walls.

In short videos, filmmaker John Waters introduces the app and its sections. Exhibition curator Nancy Spector presents an illuminating examination of Cattelan’s oeuvre, while exhibition engineers and artwork conservators offer a behind-the-scenes look at putting the show together. In more than 20 video interviews—some shot by the subjects themselves—a career’s worth of Cattelan’s friends and associates speak about the artist and his creative process. Contributors include critic Vince Aletti; artist Carsten Höller; curators Francesco Bonami, Germano Celant, Bice Curiger, Massimiliano Gioni, and Chrissie Iles; and gallerists Marian Goodman, Massimo De Carlo, and Emmanuel Perrotin. Listen to audio clips of Cattelan’s own reflections on his works read by Waters, and enjoy additional highlights including images from issues of the artist’s new magazine, Toilet Paper, plus a special preview of its latest edition, created on the occasion of the retrospective. The app will be available on iPhone, iPad, and Android at $3.99 for phone and $5.99 for tablet at guggenheim.org/cattelan-ap
