Urs Fischer, creator of the controversial “Untitled (Lamp/Bear)” sculpture currently installed on Ruth Simmons Quadrangle, spoke Wednesday about responses to his art, his creative process and art’s role in society.

Tisch’s shamelessly money-minded letter in response to Daniel Meyer’s ’17 column ought to inspire fear and outrage from students and faculty members alike.
