“Chris Burden, RIP. An artistic giant, influential teacher and mentor, fearless risk-taker, and maverick who played by his own rules, Chris was endlessly curious and tremendously exacting. It was a great honor to work with him so closely over the past several years to realize his biggest museum exhibition, ‘Chris Burden: Extreme Measures’, including the monumental installation on the Museum’s facade that he knew would alter the skyline of our neighborhood. It will remain on view for the next several months in tribute to Chris and his vision. Our thoughts go out to his wife and life partner, Nancy Rubins, as well as to Katy and the entire studio team who were extended family.” – Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director

“David Wojnarowicz: A Fire in My Belly, A Work in Progress (1986-87)” (1999)
David Wojnarowicz is a widely respected artist whose first U.S. retrospective was held at the New Museum in 1999. The film, A Fire in My Belly, A Work in Progress (1986-87) is a poetic meditation on man, life, death, faith, and suffering made in part as a response to the AIDS-related death of his close friend, artist Peter Hujar.
“The New Museum has always defended freedom of expression and continues to oppose censorship. We cannot afford to take hard won civil liberties for granted and need to remain vigilant and protect artistic freedom,” said Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director.
