Urs Fischer Marguerite de Ponty, at the New Museum

James Kalm braves fall showers and trains his way to the Bowerys New Museum for the first major museum exhibition by Urs Fischer. Lionized as one of contemporary arts most distinctive talents, Fischer earned the New York spotlight in 2007 by cutting a hole in the floor of Gavin Browns Enterprise and digging out tons of dirt leaving a gapping crater for visitors to climb into and explore. As an astute observer of spatial perception, and a master of digital technology with a mischievous sense of humor, the artist uses the most advanced commercial printing techniques to tweak space and challenge reality.Controversies surrounding the extraordinary costs of the installation are addressed by the Director of special Exhibitions Massimiliano Gioni. Includes an interview with Paddy Johnson of Art Fag City.
