“One of modern art’s most original, daring voices.”—Jason Newman, Rolling Stone

For more than 45 years, Chris Burden’s work has consistently challenged ideas about the limits and nature of modern art. His pioneering and often dangerous performance works of the 1970s earned Burden notoriety and fame in his early 20s. He had himself shot (Shoot, 1971), locked up (Five Day Locker Piece, 1971), electrocuted (Doorway to Heaven, 1973), cut (Through the Night Softly, 1973), and crucified (Trans-fixed, 1974).

As the 1970s progressed Burden became disillusioned with the expectations and misinterpretation of his early works. By the late 1970s, he quit performance and reinvented himself, going on to create a multitude of assemblages, installation, kinetic and static sculpture and scientific models.

This compelling new film charts his journey from early performance works to the Urban Light permanent installation of 202 lamps and Metropolis II at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. 2016, U.S., DCP, 90 minutes. Recommended for 16+.
