Chris Burden, The New Museum, NYC

Car balancing with a meteorite

The reason to visit NYC was the The New Museum exhibit “Chris Burden: Extreme Measures,”  presentation of Chris Burden’s work, his first major exhibition in the US in over twenty-five years.


This vintage bike is started up every few hours by a museum employee and run enough to engage the giant wheel and start it spinning. One of the Guard told us it will run for over an hour. Loud but, kind of cool




Chris Burden also has replicas of canons, bridges and 7ft LAPD police uniforms all build by the artist. There are some crazy and intricate details to these works.



More soon...
