Matthew Barney does the Morgan Library (really?)
Amid the art-world big top pin-wheeling through the month–double Koons shows, FRIEZE-alooza, etcetera–the most unlikely of artist to keep it on the down-low is the typically-exhibitionistic Matthew Barney, showing his mesmerizing drawings at midtown’s Manhattan’s tony and hush-hush Morgan Library & Museum.
It’s rather awesome, an anti-“event,” for the one-time jock-turned-androgynue and weirdo filmmaker (the “CREMASTER” series). Frankly, to Room 100, this is THE one to go see, in peace.
“Subliming Vessel: The Drawings of Matthew Barney” runs through September 2nd. Check out more of the works and other details here.
