Due date: September 2016. Publisher's description: An unusual hybrid between a solo exhibition and a group show,Urs Fisher: False Friends places the oeuvre of Swiss artist Urs Fischer (born 1973) in conversation with the work of a selection of his peers: Pawel Althamer, Maurizio Cattelan, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Robert Gober, Martin Kippenberger, Jeff Koons, Paul McCarthy, Cindy Sherman and Kiki Smith. Drawn from the holdings of the Dakis Joannou Collection and installed in the beautiful spaces of Geneva's Museum of Art and History, False Friends proposes unexpected connections between artworks and aesthetics, methods and materials, offering a reading of contemporary art as a magnetic field of elective affinities and striking variations -- a cacophonic concerto of forms.
