Please note the event location has been updated. With the installation of the playful “Untitled (Lamp/Bear)" complete on the Ruth J. Simmons Quad, the Public Art Committee presents a talk by the sculptor's creator, Urs Fischer. As part of a series that explores the inner mechanics of duality” that interrogates “what happens when two specific objects meet in an imagined space,” Fischer's 23-foot sculpture depicts an enormous baby-blue teddy bear that is physically combined with an outsized black desk lamp with a functioning light. The bear, which looks like a child’s plush toy, has a stainless steel interior framework and is part of an edition of three – the other two versions of the sculpture are yellow, and one was previously installed in front of the Seagram Building on Park Avenue in Manhattan. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. The event begins at 5 p.m. in the Salomon Center for Teaching, Room 101, the College Green.
