Urs Fischer: The Public & the Private

at The Legion of Honor

This was one of the more extraordinary shows I’ve seen in some time.  Having the contemporary sculptures of Urs Fischer interspersed among the Rodin statues and even a painting taking the place of a Peter Paul Rubens created such a dynamic juxtaposition of old and new, giving both new context and meaning.

The Crying Horse

I can’t intellectualize why, but this tiny horse is one of my favorite things I’ve ever seen. I saw a man nearly trip over it after not noticing it at all.

It all seems like such a fuck you to the art establishment that is the museum. It’s so rare to step into this kind of place and see such humor.

The elusive peach shake

It just doesn’t feel like Summer until you get a peach shake from Whitey’s Jolly Kone. Unfortunately, I was a few days ahead of the peach crop and settled for pineapple. 1
