Feel free to bring a camping chair or cushions as standard seating will be provided.

Doors at 6pm, film at 7pm; followed by conversation and mingling.

About the Film

In the 1970s, artist Chris Burden was called the "Evel Knievel of the art world" and considered both totally mad and an absolute genius. He had a man shoot him at point-blank. He had his palms nailed to a Volkswagon in the image of Christ. He paid for gonzo TV ads featuring his provocative, dangerous art. BURDEN takes us on a wild ride through his obsessive art process, his odd childhood, his cruel breakups, his dangerous relationship to drugs and an Uzi - as well as his remarkable transformation. Offering a trove of humorous interviews from artists, friends, professors, ex-girlfriends, and even Burden himself, filmmakers Timothy Marrinan and Richard Dewey offer an intimate portrait of an artist obsessed with spectacle. His wreckless life delivers him to the isolated hills of his California home, where he can hear the tall grass blow in the wind. It is in this place that his most playful and pleasurable works are conceived: art installations that are whimsical and enormous. Burden’s legacy is a journey from fear to marvel that dares to ponder, "What is art? And, what can art do?" A Tribeca Film Festival selection. Featuring music by Andrew Bird, Roger Goula, and Ru Hazell.
