Overview

This comprehensive overview, the first to appear in almost a decade, examines an artistic career, that now must be viewed as one of the most fascinating in the history of contemporary art. From his highly controversial and seminal performance works of the early 1970s, to his complex, imaginative installations and monumental sculptures, the art of Chris Burden uniquely informs as well as incorporates the major artistic undercurrents of the last three decades. Not only has the artist made a major contribution to the history of body-related performance art, but the artist's fascination with systems of power, societal organization, architectural structure and technological systems, have resulted in an extraordinary body of sculptural objects and environmental installations over the last 35 years. In compiling this publication the artist has worked closely with curator and long time associate Fred Hoffman, taking this opportunity to re-examine his work afresh and revealing images that are unpublished or rarely seen.

Editorial Reviews

W Magazine - Kevin McGarry
Chirs Burden forever earned his place in art history and pop consciousness when he was shot in the arm in 1971, under his own direction, in the seminal performance piece "Shoot". Still, that's probably the last thing the artist wants to talk about, given that over the past four decades he has put out an evolving body of work in a wide range of media.
