Matthew Barney To Collaborate With Elizabeth Peyton in Greece
Artnet reports that Matthew Barney is collaborating with painter Elizabeth Peyton on a site-specific installation on the Greek island of Hydra. The exhibition will be held at the Slaughterhouse, a new project space (housed in - guess what? - a former slaughterhouse) run by mega-collector Dakis Joannou and the Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art. The components of the installation will be realized together on-site and will be exhibited afterwards as one work. The exhibition opens on June 16 and runs through September 30.
