Urs Fischer "The Kiss" @ Sadie Coles Gallery In London

Urs Fischer’s 2017 exhibition at Sadie Coles HQ centers on a large-scale replica of Auguste Rodin’s The Kiss, cast in white Plasticine. The famous image of embracing lovers will morph and fragment over the course of the exhibition through the interventions of visitors, who will be free to remould the Plasticine at will. The image of an entwined couple also appears in a group of four new paintings, in which the artist uses classic movie stills as stock visual formulae – found images to be disrupted and redeployed. Urs Fischer "The Kiss" will be on view until March 11, 2017 at Sadie Coles in London. photographs by Mazzy-Mae Green

A First Look At The Brilliant New Broad Museum and Collection in Los Angeles

Autre was invited to the preview of the amazing new Broad Museum in Los Angeles designed by Diller Scofidio and Renfro. Housed in a structure enveloped in a coral reef-like outer shell, the Broad's immersive art collection sits in a bath of diffused light as you take a journey through multiple artistic movements - from California conceptualism to pop art to some of the finest contemporary artists of the last decade. After five years of intensive of construction, the Broad is a formidable force not only in the artistic and cultural atmosphere of Los Angeles – it also sets a bar for museum institutions worldwide. The Broad is set to open on September 20, 2015.  photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper

Opening Night of Urs Fischer's "Fountains" @ Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills

Gagosian Beverly Hills presents an exhibition of sculptures and paintings by Urs Fischer. Constantly searching for new sculptural solutions, Fischer has an uncanny ability to envisage and produce objects undergoing psychic transformation in a bewildering range of materials. As its title suggests, this exhibition is conceived around fully functional fountains, “active sculptures” that transform the galleries into humid and energized places through which viewers can wander, as if in a town square. The lumpen fountains are cast in bronze from hand-built clay models; the rims of the water basins are powder-coated white, while the base is left as raw roseate metal. In one gallery, a sort of roughly formed, almost naturalistic blowhole spouts water, splashing merrily and drowning out all other sound; in the other, water hisses from a misting ball, and spills down over two tiered basins. A third fountain, also in cast bronze and delicately powder-coated in parts, is a human skeleton arched across a chair over which a draped garden hose gently flows—the latest in Fischer's lexicon of darkly humorous vanitasUrs Fischer "Fountains"  will be on view until October 17, 2015 at Gagosian Beverly Hills.
