Matthew Barney: Redoubt | Yale University Art Gallery

Redoubt is a comprehensive catalogue of the artist’s newest project, which centers on a two-hour film that creates a complex portrait of the American landscape by layering classical, cosmological, and American myths about humanity’s place in the natural world.

March 1, 2019 – June 16, 2019
Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut

September 28, 2019–December 15, 2019
UCCA, Beijing

March 4, 2020–May 10, 2020
Hayward Gallery, London

As you can read above, showings of the film will be at Yale University, then off to China. I suspect hoping for a potential showing anyplace near Idaho would be a bit ridiculous… 

I wasn’t aware of Barney’s connection to Boise. I thought they were talking about his connection to Björk, I get the two confused so often. Now that I’ve beaten the SWAN completely to death now…
