Can Art Help Protect The Environment?

Chris Burden Lightening Up
Chris Burden is an enormously influential conceptual artist who began exhibiting in 1971. He received instant fame that year with a performance piece called Shoot in which a friend, at his request, shot him in the arm. Since then his work has investigated the workings of money, power, military might in a past that has seen him try to destroy galleries and challenge governments. Now hes exhibiting a collection of antique lamps, ArtReview asks has Chris Burden finally mellowed out?
Do androids dream of making art?

Roxy Paines form is worked and reworked by an array of hidden robotic arms that poke, prod and generally shift the configuration of the pieces.

For more than a decade Roxy Paine has built elaborate constructions that seem to answer the question: How would a machine make a painting or a sculpture?

Get the contemporary art guide to Amsterdam and find out where to go for Contemporary Art, Creative Inspiration and also where one can interact with art.

As part of the guide theres also a must see list of Amsterdams Summer Exhibitions.
