On View—Urs Fischer at the Legion of Honor, San Francisco

April 22, 2017

“Urs Fischer: The Public & the Private” at the Legion of Honor Museum, San Francisco is now on view through July 2, 2017.

In conjunction with the exhibition “Auguste Rodin: The Centenary Installation,” the Legion of Honor has invited Fischer to bring a contemporary perspective to our understanding and appreciation of the Museums’s permanent collection.

Streaming live on Facebook @ 4 pm EST: assistant curator Jennie Goldstein updates us on Standing Julian’s progress (spoiler alert: his head is no longer attached!).

The 8-foot tall, 1000 pound portrait by Urs Fischer of friend and fellow artist Julian Schnabel is also a giant candle. The sculpture has been lit daily since April 2016—and its last lighting is happening this Sunday

Closing today—Urs Fischer at Gagosian Hong Kong

May 13, 2017

As an artist you compete with reality, and the order of reality is always more interesting than the order you can make. But, because you make the order, it becomes information.
—Urs Fischer
