Now I Am Quietly Waiting For The Catastrophe Of My Personality To Seem Beautiful Again, And Interesting, and Modern, Installation view, Bortolami Gallery, New York, NY 2012

Burr examines how personality takes on “an external form, an otherness,” and how this extension of oneself develops a fortuitous narrative. As O’Hara invoked Mayakovsky and other artists in his poems, Burr selected the artists in this show based on his own connection to them and to their artwork.
