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 a place in the art history books while still in his early 20s. He had himself shot, locked up, electrocuted, advertised on television, and crucified on a Volkswagen Beetle. But as the 70s progressed, Burden became disillusioned with the misconceptions of his early works, and the line between his life and his art blurred. BURDEN is the story of an artist coming to terms with the meaning of his legacy.
