What's the latest in NOW? Chris Burden’s "Ode to Santos-Dumont" is otherworldly yet historically grounded, suggestive of a time when technological innovation and experimentation evoked an optimism toward futurity rather than the often dystopian concerns of the present day. Come see it fly at Art Basel Unlimited this week, on view through June 18. Read "Burden's Airship Takes Flight," Sydney Stutterheim's text about the sculpture on NOW (click on the link in our bio). #ChrisBurden #OdetoSantosDumont #LatestinNOW #ArtBasel #ArtBaselUnlimited
