My Barbarian: Artist Talk

WED, Dec 8, 2021
7 pm

Online, via Zoom

On the occasion of the survey exhibition My Barbarian, the members of the group—Malik Gaines, Jade Gordon, and Alexandro Segade—will share the story of their twenty years of collective practice. From their earliest performances in Los Angeles clubs to their social and political theater productions, the conversation will tell the history of the group’s evolution and highlight their multivalent approach to performance. The program also celebrates the publication of the first monograph about My Barbarian, which includes a richly illustrated visual chronology with texts written by the artists.

Free with registration.
