Tony Oursler {click here}

who is interviewed in Henry Hills' *Emma's Dilemma*, discussed below,
has a darkly humorous installation
at the Metropolitan Museum
titled *Climaxed* A cartoon
cloud-character, housed in a roomful
of reddish-yellow clouds,
explodes, again and again, in
comic-book rage at the world.
In *Emma's Dilemma*, Oursler
puts an emphasis on dialogue
and interaction as key elements
in his work and what most
interests him in art. His other
installation at the Met now, an
homage to a painting by
Courbet, commissioned by
the Musee D'Orsay in Paris,
is a replica of his studio.
