Schjeldahl on the "mildly talented" Urs Fischer

Urs Fischer's Cumpadre, 2009

Suffice it to say Peter Schjeldahl didn't love the New Museum's show by the "mildly talented" Urs Fischer.

The kicker, from his New Yorker mini-review:
It’s all nicely diverting—but from what? If you spend more than twenty minutes with the three-floor extravaganza, you’re loitering. The New Museum could just as well not have done the show while saying it did. The effect would be roughly the same: expressing a practically reptilian institutional craving for a new art star.
