Monograph on groundbreaking American artist and provocateur Chris Burden. Widely known for his performance piece "Shoot" from 1971, in which he was shot at close range in the arm by a friend with a rifle, Burden went on to become the leading "body performance" artist in the US. This comprehensive survey illustrates his expansive and varied body of work over the course of 35 years, from his early iconic performance pieces to the sculptural projects and environmental installations that defined the latter half of his career. Illustrated throughout with color and black-and-white plates, photos and reproductions; with essays by curators Fred Hoffman, Paul Schimmel, Kristine Stiles and Robert Storr. Fine in unclipped dust jacket. Item #2361
