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.
