This Week at LACMA

July 16, 2023

Matthew Barney’s REPRESSIA (decline) is a seminal installation from his breakout 1991 solo exhibition Facility of DECLINE. Recently acquired by LACMA, this room-sized sculptural installation established Barney’s visual language and anticipates the corporeal drive of his Cremaster cycle of five films, all of which feature performance across different sites and timelines. See it on its opening day, Sunday, July 23.
