This is the first comprehensive museum retrospective of works by internationally acclaimed Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer, one of today’s most important contemporary artists. He's known for using a range of media to express the transience of art and, concomitantly, the human condition. Residing primarily in New York, Fischer is also familiar with Los Angeles, where he has a home and studio. Focusing on the last decade, the show brings together his many iconic works from leading international collections as well as new productions. A new landscape within the two unique museum spaces encompasses Fischer’s singular sense of the banal and the fantastical.
