BURDEN (Richard Dewey and Timothy Marrinan, 2016, 90 minutes)
Experience the metamorphosis of the artist Chris Burden, who guaranteed his place in art history beginning in 1971 while still a student in Southern California. Preceded by a period of often dangerous, at times stomach-churning performances, he then reinvented himself as a creator of captivating installations and sculptures, including an assemblage of antique street lights rewired for solar energy on permanent display outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Critic Brian Gordon writes, “For 45 years, Chris Burden maintained a quest to challenge perceived boundaries of modern art in an always awe-inspiring manner. …Burdenmeticulously explores a complex, ever-evolving individual who became one of the most admired artists of his generation.”
