This Week at LACMA

July 23, 2023

Recently acquired by LACMA, Matthew Barney’s REPRESSIA (decline) is a room-sized installation featuring sculptural components and two videos in which the artist performs strenuous acts of athletics with unorthodox outcomes: Radial Drill (1991) and Blind Perineum (1991). Step into the installation this week or visit on Sunday, July 30, to join a LACMA docent for a tour.
