Peter Fischli David Weiss

May 2013—December 2014

Fascinated with unconventional subject matter and material, Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss cheekily toy with the idea of “high art,” questioning popular narratives and movements in art and cultural history. Our fourth exhibition, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, presented an in-depth survey of the duo’s work from 1979 through 2012. More than two-dozen works were on display, including the artists’ most ambitious polyurethane installation to date, The Objects for Glenstone 2011.
