Urs Fischer Marguerite DePonty @ The New Museum 10/27/09

Urs Fischer takes over most of The New Museum for a show that isn’t a retrospective but mostly new stuff. He didn’t dig up any floors, as he has done in the past, but there had to be structural reinforcements on one floor. It’s hard to describe what Urs is about because that is what he is about. What ever he is doing becomes the piece. I’m sure lots goes into this instillation, the program notes and the NY Times article tell the story of the exact specs of what he does. As with much “new art” having a hip inside view adds to the experience and this show is no exception. Some day I want to be hip! That being said this doesn’t require too much hipness to be enjoyable and there is some visceral reaction the whole show that makes for a terrific experience. It’s fun to go to the New Museum and see what provocation is happening, keep up the good work. Don’t miss the tongue in the wall on the second floor.
