Chris Burden: Streetlamps explores the artist’s iconic work with antique streetlamps. Five major streetlamp sculptures are highlighted, all of which are lavishly documented from conception through installation. The works are further illuminated with texts by Russell Ferguson, Christopher Bedford, and George Roberts; a conversation between Michael Govan and Chris Burden; and a photo essay by Ari Marcopoulos. This publication is the 500th book the gallery has published. It is an exciting and fitting book to mark this achievement as Burden was among the first artists to work with Larry Gagosian, starting in 1976.
