Art Exhibition Catalogue Review

Book: Fischli Weiss Flowers and Questions: A Retrospective

Editor/Publisher: Tate Publishing

Genre: Artist Retrospective

This is a wonderful survey of the careers of the artist duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss. Known for their humor, these two artists are completely at home in multiple mediums including installation, sculpture, photography, and of course film. I recommend becoming familiar with some of their works before delving into this retrospective which features essays by John Waters, Robert Fleck, and Frederic Tuten, just to mention a few. Some of my favorite work of Fischli and Weiss is their work with cold cuts.

Thanks Steph! Congratulations on your upcoming Art Show. We'll really miss you when you graduate.

Cold cuts, eh. I see they also work in Chocolate.

Take care,
