Solo Exhibition

Maurizio Cattelan Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Art Foundation will host a solo exhibition by Maurizio Cattelan at Blenheim Palace this autumn. This is Cattelan’s first and most significant solo exhibition in the United Kingdom in twenty years and will feature new works specially made for the show. The new works will be joined by a number of his most iconic pieces as part of a themed selection displayed throughout the 18th century Palace, engaging with Blenheim’s history and unique setting.

The exhibition will notably feature America (2016), a solid 18-Karat gold toilet which will be installed inside the Palace, adjacent to Sir Winston Churchill’s birth room. As a fully functioning toilet, visitors will be welcome to use it during their visit and experience a rare individual encounter with one of contemporary art’s most famous works.

Update: the work, America, has been stolen.  Read more in The New York Times.
