Chris Burden: Extreme Measures

Including four themes, such as the Myth of the American West, the Institution, Gender Roles, and Model Making, Chris Burden: Extreme Measures provides new perspectives on Burden’s art and reexamines preoccupations such as extreme physical suffering, forgotten urban objects, and toy models, that span the artist’s long career. The book was published on the occasion of the New Museum’s focused survey of Burden’s work over four decades.
