Urs Fischer: 'Marguerite de Ponty'
The New Museum of Contemporary Art
235 Bowery, newmuseum.org
Through February 7, 2010

For Fischer's heroes, like Koons & Co., the extended boom market was the perfect foil for making slippery, court-jester critiques. Billionaire sponsorship was just part of the discourse. But what Fischer and his minions can do with a camera, computer, and scanner outstrips his attempts to emulate those artists. He needs some new models. But so does the New Museum. Or maybe, now that they're both in their thirties, it's time to shrug off their influences and break some new ground.
