In this project Cattelan focuses on the artist Pablo Picasso. By using his likeness in effigy Cattelan elevates Picasso to a position in European Carnivale celebrations most often reserved for world leaders. An actor in a Carnivale-type Picasso mask will greet visitors to the Museum during the run of the exhibition.
