"Restaging the Everyday: Recent Work by Beat Streuli and Fischli/Weiss"
2001-12-08 until 2002-03-17
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
San Francisco, CA, USA

Restaging the Everyday: Recent Work by Beat Streuli and Fischli/Weiss is an installation of two works by contemporary Swiss artists Beat Streuli and the Swiss duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss. Organized by Benjamin Weil, SFMOMA curator of media arts, the exhibition raises questions about how the realms of the mundane, the familiar and fine art intersect.

The short video Busi (Kitty), 2001, by Peter Fischli and David Weiss, presents a kitten walking towards the camera and lapping milk out of a saucer. Recently featured in The 59th Minute: Video Art on the Times Square Astrovision by Panasonic organized by Creative Time, this work revisits a major theme -- the banal -- in the Swiss duo’s oeuvre.
