David Weiss

One half of the incredible duo Fischli/Weiss, David Weiss succumbed to cancer┬áthis past┬ámonth. Peter Fischli and David Weiss began collaborating in 1979, and they participated in the 1988 and 2008 Carnegie Internationals. Weiss was present at both exhibition openings, and I’ve heard very fond remembrances from many current and former CMA staff. Look for The Way Things Go (part of the CMA’s collection, and called “one of the most acclaimed art films of the late 20th century,” by the NYT‘s Roberta Smith) to be on view in our “Fountain Gallery” (outside the Scaife restrooms) in the coming month. You can read the Times‘s obituary here.
