Chris Burden is the definitive book on one of the most influential and controversial artists of recent decades.
Chris Burden is a seminal figure in contemporary art. His performances in the 1970s redefined the possibilities of the medium; his subsequent sculpture and installations have extended the limits of the physical in art.
This book, the first substantial monograph on the artist in twenty years, gives a complete overview of his practice, illustrated with many previously unseen images, illuminated by texts from some of the most important curators and writers on art today and supported by a complete catalogue.
With texts by Fred Hoffman, Lisa Le Feuvre, Paul Schimmel, Kristine Stiles and Robert Storr
