Michele and I went to the Hammer Museum out in Westwood last night to see Matthew Barney speak.. unbelievable crowd just to get in the lecture hall. We actually had to become members of the museum just to get a better chance at getting inside, which worked. The best thing, though, was that instead of just getting up and talking about his work he screened his new 1-hour video about the myths surrounding Brazilian Carnival – shot on a float he made for Carnival during the procession. It was gorgeous. The float itself was made out of a huge deforestation tractor – it pulls trees out of the ground by the trunk.
