A tragic Italian poet, a radical Korean philosopher and the art of shoe-making are some of the things coming to the Guggenheim next year. The museum unveiled its 2011 exhibitions today and they include a show with the satirical sculptures of Maurizio Cattelan in the fall, the first North American retrospective of sculptor and painter Lee Ufan in June, and the installation Shoelace Exchange, by the San Francisco group Futurefarmers, in May.
