Gagosian presents Broadcast: Alternate Meanings in Film and Video, an online exhibition of artists’ films and videos viewable exclusively on gagosian.com.
The Top 7 art exhibitions to see this week include Polyamory, Impressionism, a Porsche, drum majorettes, umbrellas, eruption and equality.
Measured is an exhibition of two very large-scale works by Chris Burden: 1 Ton Crane Truck (2009) and Porsche with Meteorite (2013).
Chris Burden at Gagosian a functional 1964 F350 Ford crane-truck is held in balance with the weight of a one-ton cast-iron cube, and a Porsche sports car is suspended in equilibrium with a meteorite
Since the 1970s, Burden has channeled the daring spirit of his early life-threatening performances into sculptures that embody technical feats on an imposing scale. Toys (figurines, train sets, Erector parts) are used as the building blocks for expansive scale models, cities, and battlefields, while actual vehicles (ships, trucks, and cars) are suspended or set in motion in surreal and improbable ways.
The Art of Not Making:The New Artist/Artisan Relationship is the first book to tackle these questions head on, exploring the concepts of authorship, artistic originality, skill, craftsmanship and the creative act
