CREMASTER 2

Matthew Barney, CREMASTER 2, 1999; Production still

May 20 - September 05, 2000

CREMASTER 2, the latest installment in Matthew Barney's ongoing series of cinematic "operas," traces the rise and fall of antihero Gary Gilmore — convicted killer and alleged grandson of Harry Houdini. Critically hailed as one of the most crucial artists of his generation, Barney peoples the hallucinatory landscape of his 35-millimeter film and its related installation with bees, bison, heavy-metal drummers, magicians, mediums, Mounties, two-steppers and much, much more. This will be the West Coast premiere of the film and full installation.
