University Arts (FREE Texas State Students)

My Barbarian’s Double Agency is a hybrid of theater, art, and video. Originally commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art as an online video series and one-time performance event, the project used tropes from TV shows like Mission: Impossible to explore questions of cultural appropriation and boundaries between artistic fields—connecting esoteric performance art to its popular opposites, television and the internet. At this Cold War-like moment when ideological tensions between world powers intensifies without military action, My Barbarian returns to its project about spies by re-imagining Double Agency for the first time as an exhibition. In the white cube space of the Texas State Galleries, an installation of forged masks from the LACMA collection becomes the site for a new live performance. Documentation from this performance as well as new footage filmed on Texas State campus in collaboration with Texas State actors, is edited into the next episode of the Double Agency series, to premiere at the end of the exhibition’s run.
