Matthew Barney: REPRESSIA (decline)

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents Matthew Barney: REPRESSIA (decline). Acquired by LACMA in 2019, REPRESSIA (decline) (1991) establishes Matthew Barney’s influential visual language and probes the themes of masculinity and theatricality in sports that have reemerged in the artist's latest project, SECONDARY (2023), which debuted in New York this past May. REPRESSIA (decline) is the first work by Barney to enter LACMA’s collection.

The exhibition is curated by Rita Gonzalez, Curator and Department Head, Contemporary Art, at LACMA.
