Chris Burden: B-car, 1976


invitation / announcement
Los Angeles, United States
3808 Beverly Blvd.


Los Angeles: [Roger Wong Gallery?] 3808 Beverly Blvd., 1976 (07), 8,9×13,9 cm. Exhibition [?] announcement card relating to Burden’s B-Car project. Apparently this is the obscure first presentation of B-Car predating the famous Ronald Feldman show by almost a year. Recto an appropriated motto from an advertisement in Popular Mechanics is boldly reproduced, alluding to both Burden’s early extreme, dangerous activities and to the construction of the B-Car – all with an overall hint of irony. Extremely scarce and mysterious card. Never seen before.

condition: Faint pencil inscription ‘Broken Jail [?]’ verso.
