Chris Burden

Chris Burden is a pretty rad dude, he first came onto art the scene in the early seventies. Known for his shocking live performances, Burden was the first to establish punk as art. His most recent project, Metropolis II is far more tame than his early work. Burden spent the last four years completing the installation. Recently, I had an opportunity to see Metropolis II at the LACMA. I was impressed by the sheer size of the piece, a very cool retrospect to Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.
