For an artist so frequently in the headlines, think the banana peel at Art Basel or a morbidly hanging figure of himself in Milan, Maurizio Cattelan (suprisingly) has not staged his own gallery solo exhibition in over 20 years. That will change later this month, as the Italian artist will take over Gagosian‘s 522 West 21st Street location in New York for a new show entitled Sunday.

While details are still largely under wraps, Cattelan will use his Gagosian debut as an examination into the contradictions of American society and culture. Curated by Italian writer Francesco Bonami, Sunday coincides with a series of works that he will present during the forthcoming Venice Biennale at the Holy See Pavilion, presented in collaboration with the Vatican church.

Whether one agrees with Bonami’s statement, that Cattelan is “the most famous Italian artist since Caravaggio,” it’s undeniable that Cattelan has been one of the most subversive creative figures of the past 30 years for his uncanny ability to provocatively bridge past and present, aimed at challenging onlookers and the didactic art institutions of the world.

Sunday will open at Gagosian New York on April 30 and run through June 15.
