Chris Burden is joined by Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director of the New Museum, in a discussion on the exhibition “Chris Burden: Extreme Measures.”
“Chris Burden: Extreme Measures” is an expansive presentation of Chris Burden’s work that marks the first New York survey of the artist and his first major exhibition in the US in over twenty-five years. Burden’s epoch-defining work has made him one of the most important American artists to emerge since 1970. Spanning a forty-year career and moving across mediums, “Extreme Measures” presents a selection of Burden’s work focused on weights and measures, boundaries and constraints, where physical and moral limits are called into question. “Chris Burden: Extreme Measures” is organized by Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director, with Massimiliano Gioni, Associate Director and Director of Exhibitions, Jenny Moore, Associate Curator (until July 2013), and Margot Norton, Assistant Curator.
