The Menil Collection proves time and time again how lucky Houstonians are to have it in their midst. From antiquities to fresh-out-of-the-studio contemporary art, the programming is consistently exciting. Now, in an exhibition organized by LACMA-bound curator Franklin Sirmans, the funny-creepy world of Maurizio Cattelan is coming to H-Town. The artist’s first solo show in the U.S. since 2003 includes recent large-scale works and site-specific installations as well as four new works. The Menil will be publishing an exhibition catalogue called Maurizio Cattelan: Is There Life Before Death?.
