Record Type: Person
Burden, Chris (American sculptor, performance artist, and installation artist,1946-2015)

Note: Burden studied at Pomona College, Claremont, California, receiving a BA . He received an MFA in 1971 from the University of California, Irvine. Early in his career he rejected object-based works to create performances based on his own body in extreme or dangerous situations, including being shot in the arm, and crucified on a Volkswagen. In his later works, he returned to physical sculpture and installation, often critical of power structures, but at times playful and popular with broader audiences, such as his 'Urban Light' and 'Metropolis II' installations at LACMA in Los Angeles.
