Burt Barr

Page 1


Burt Barr began making video-works in 1984. The early pieces were single- screen and were shown in film festivals around the world such as the Montreal, Berlin, Toronto, Melbourne, San Sebastian, as well as public television broadcasts in the United States and Europe. In 1993 he made the transition to installation works, large-scale projection pieces that are currently exhibited in museums and galleries.

From the very begining, Burt Barr has worked with members of the art-world, many of them actors in various roles. Included in this group are Clarissa Dalrymple, Klaus Kertess, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Trisha Brown (his wife), Elizabeth Murray, Cecily Brown, Billy Sullivan, Jessica Craig-Martin, Nessia Pope, Robert Rauschenberg, Stephen Mueller, Carroll Dunham, Tim Davis, Teresita Fernandez, Jeff Gauntt, Ester Partegas, and "downtown " performers such as Willem DaFoe, Diane Madden & Lance Gries, Stephen Petronio & Jodi Melnick, Stanford Makishi and Jimena Paz. Working with these artists formed another and overall dimension to the work - that of documentation - of a particular people (the art community) during a particular time.

In addition, he has made several works with the Trisha Brown Company, creating pieces based on dance. These works have been shown in varied places such as the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; PBS National Broadcasts; Centre George Pompidou, Paris; ICA Philadelphia; the Leo Castelli Gallery and Anthology Film Archives, both of New York City.

In 1991 he joined the Paula Cooper Gallery. He now exhibits with and is represented by Brent Sikkema in New York City. He has had solo shows at The Whitney Museum in New York City, The Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, The Platform Contemporary Art Center in Istanbul along with installations at the Yale University Art Gallery, the ZKM Museum in Germany, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Museum Boymans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.

He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including six National Endowment for The Arts Grants, three New York State Council Grants, The American Film Institute, Arts America Grantee, the Andrea Frank Foundation, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Art, the Massachusetts Council on the Arts & Humanities, as well as production funding from private sponsors.

Burt Barr lives and works in New York City.
