Medium: Installation at MOCA, Los Angeles
Date: 1986 - 2008
In 1986, Burden dug through the floor of MOCA's Temporary Contemporary and exposed the foundation piers of the structure. In a concrete form of institutional critique, Burden's exposing of the foundations acts as a literal revealing of the physical boundaries and limits of the museum. Burden and MOCA re-did the piece in 2008 at the Geffen Contemporary, the now-official name of the Temporary Contemporary.
