Barney joins Paul Holdengraber to explore his boundless imagination and wide-ranging career.

From his earliest work, Matthew Barney has explored the transcendence of physical limitations within an interdisciplinary art practice. His epic Cremaster Cycle, a five-part film project he began in 1994 and completed in 2002, incorporated accompanying sculptures, photographs, and drawings. Barney's latest and arguably most ambitious project is River of Fundament, loosely based on Norman Mailer's 1983 novel Ancient Evenings, and blending narrative cinema with opera, sculpture and live performance. Barney joins Paul Holdengraber to explore his boundless imagination and wide-ranging career.

Barney was born in San Francisco in 1967 and raised in Boise, Idaho. He attended Yale University, receiving his BA in 1989, then moved to New York City, where he resides today. Barney has received numerous awards for his work including the Aperto prize at the 1993 Venice Biennale; the Hugo Boss Award in 1996; the 2007 Kaiser Ring Award in Goslar, Germany and the San Francisco International Film Festival’s Persistence of Vision Award in 2011.
