“This exhibition is the very first, after the Guggenheim show, that has more than three of my works altogether: it is a special editing of things I’ve done before retiring. Let’s say it is a post-requiem show, where, like in a Poe’s novel, I’m pretending to be dead, but I can still see and hear what happens around."
–Maurizio Cattelan


Monnaie de Paris houses Maurizio Cattelan’s largest European exhibition ever. From October 21, 2016 to January 8, 2017, Not Afraid of Love, curated by Chiara Parisi, director of Cultural Programs, sets Maurizio Cattelan’s “comeback at work” in one of the most beautiful Palaces on the river Seine.

“Not Afraid of Love, it's a contradiction in terms: love might be the solution of every problem in the world, but there’s no love in exhibition. The lack of love, or the quest for love, is the engine that moves every creature, and the cause of every war, probably.”

At 56 years old, Maurizio Cattelan has almost no fear of anything, nor love, nor death, nor to tell a little more.

The exhibition comes together with the publication of an artist book entirely conceived by Maurizio Cattelan and published by Monnaie de Paris, also some special coin editions are created by the artist in the engraving workshops of Monnaie de Paris.

The work of Maurizio Cattelan provokes debates, reactions, thoughts. On the occasion of Not Afraid of Love at Monnaie de Paris, more than 40 personalities from contemporary life present their argued reaction, for and against, about one work presented in the show.
