About the Author

Chris Burden was born in Boston in 1946, the son of an engineer. Partially trained as an architect, he began to create radical performance body-art works in the late 1960s. Solo exhibitions of his work have been held at the Arts Club of Chicago, the Gagosian Galleries in New York, Beverly Hills, and the Tate Gallery in London. Burden was included in the 48th Venice Biennale and in the 1977, 1989, and 1997 Whitney Biennials. In 2005, Burden set sail his self-navigating, computer-controlled yacht, built with assistance from the Marine Engineering Department of the University of Southampton. Since 1978, Burden has held a professorship in New Media at the University of California, Los Angeles, the city in which he took up residence in 1965.

The German-born American artist Kiki Smith began showing at alternative spaces such as The Kitchen and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York in the mid-1980s. By the early 90s, she had earned a strong international reputation, participating in the Whitney Biennials of 1991 and 1993. Solo exhibitions have taken place at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and several venues in Europe. She is represented by PaceWildenstein Gallery in New York.

James Turrell is one of the founders of the California light and space art movement of the late 1960s and early 70s.

Jan Hoet has been director of the Ghent museum since the late 1970's, and in addition has produced exhibitions all over the world. He achieved international renown for his legendary Chambres d'Amis exhibit of 1986, the catalogue to which is now a valuable rarity.
