A Beast/A Burden Examines an Artist's Process
Before Chris Burden became known to millions with his "Urban Lights" and "Metropolis II" exhibits at LACMA, he spent his early years as one of the most controversial and subversive performance artist in the United States, putting himself and others in uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous situations for his art. A Beast/A Burden covers five incredible and influential months in the life of the young artist as he forms the basis for his ever-present mythic stature in the art world. This historical dramatization evaluates the nature and purpose of art, the place of "self" in an artist's work and the way creatives evolve over time into who they're meant to become. Catch the Hollywood Fringe Festival world premiere of this bio-play at L.A.'s Broadwater Black Box.
