Peter Fischli and David Weiss:
In a Restless World

May 5-August 11, 1996 |  Press Release

Since the late 1970s, Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss have participated in a collaborative art practice that engages the most humble of everyday objects in a display of spectacle and bravura. Their presentations of the commonplace, which take a wide variety of forms in sculpture, photography, film, video, and installation art, create a dialogue between opposites--order and chaos, work and play, the mundane and the sublime. The Walker Art Center-organized exhibition Peter Fischli and David Weiss: In a Restless World brings together key pieces from the artists' collaboration, tracing their highly entertaining and simultaneously disquieting body of work over the past 15 years. It will premiere in Minneapolis May 5-August 11, before traveling to Philadelphia, Columbus, San Francisco, Boston, and Wolfsburg, Germany.
