For 2009′s exhibition The Quick and the Dead, Kris Martin created a piece that involved burying a human skeleton somewhere on the Walker’s grounds. Where is it? To find the location of the skeleton, follow the coordinates printed on the official certificate. Where did we get the skeleton? It was donated to the Walker by Kiki Smith who was given the skeleton by David Wojnarowicz.
