Now is your last chance to see the giant exhibit which spans across MOCA Grand Avenue and The Geffen Contemporary, by Swiss contemporary artist Urs Fischer.  The exhibit  closes this Monday, running from 04.21.13 – 08.19.13.  The exhibit is both dreamy and crude, letting you step into Urs Fischer’s vision of the contradicting times we live in. It contains the sleek and clean, as well as the raw in all of it’s deterioration, demise, and natural imperfections.
