Brown University has announced that Urs Fischer, the artist responsible for “Untitled (Lamp/Bear),” a giant teddy bear combined with an oversized desk lamp that was installed in Simmons Quad this summer, is coming to campus to hold a lecture.
“This is a great opportunity for students and others to gain
insight into Urs’ eclectic vision and his working method,” David Winton Bell Gallery Director Jo-Ann Conklin said.
Fischer will be discussing his other works of art as
well as “Untitled (Lamp/Bear).”
Robert Emlen, curator and member of the Public Art Committee at Brown, said the purpose of public art is “not just to enliven the campus
but to provide a context for discussion.”
“We want to encourage people to stop,
think and talk about it,” he said. “It’s a good sign that people notice, that people are
moved by these artworks.”
