If a naughty Catholic schoolboy had an unlimited budget to put on an exhibit at the Guggenheim, Maurizio Cattelan's All is likely what you'd end up with. Check out a slideshow of the hyper-real sculptures and disconcerting pieces of taxidermy Cattelan's hung from the Guggenheim's ceiling here.

International street art and monochromatic paintings that explore various aspects of color. Plus, performance art and Inspectah Deck of the Wu-Tang Clan. It's all happening in the city this week. Here are our picks.

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.
