Maurizio Cattelan is probably best known for his satirical and controversial sculptures, particularly La Nona Ora (The Ninth Hour), depicting the Pope John Paul II struck down by a meteorite. Along with long-term collaborators Ali Subotnick and Massimiliano Gioni, he curated the 2006 Berlin Biennale, ran the Wrong Gallery, a glass door in New York attracting many highly accomplished artists to exhibit and published Charley: an occasional slightly satirical arts journal. He frequently submits articles to international publications such as Flash Art.
