Featuring new works, this exhibition is Maurizio Cattelan’s (b1960) first and most significant solo exhibition in the UK in 20 years.

Maurizio Cattelan is best known for his hyper-realistic sculptures that take inspiration from pop culture and history in order to make sharp and satirical comments on society, power and authority. The exhibition notably features America (2016) – one of Cattelan’s most recognisable works – a solid 18-Karat gold toilet which will be installed inside Blenheim 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.

Alongside America are a number of new works created specifically for this exhibition – emblematic of Cattelan’s practice in their mixture of irreverent humour and astute social commentary.
