250 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012
MOCA present the first comprehensive museum retrospective of works by the internationally acclaimed Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer. Fischer is one of today’s most important contemporary artists, who is known for using a range of media to express the transience of art and, concomitantly, the human condition. Jessica Morgan, renowned curator from the Tate Modern in London, is curating the exhibition, which will occupy a total of 65,000 square feet at both MOCA Grand Avenue and The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA from April 21, 2013 to August 19, 2013. Now residing primarily in New York, Fischer is also familiar with Los Angeles where he has a home and studio. Presenting his work of the last decade the show will bring together for the first time his many iconic works from leading international collections as well as new productions. A new landscape within the two unique museum spaces will encompass Fischer’s singular sense of the banal and the fantastical.
