“Art world commentary wrapped in hyper-stylized adventures…My Barbarian has evolved from a theatrical project to a band then to a performance art group.”
Malik Gaines and Alexandro Segade are founding members of the collective My Barbarian, who work at the intersection of theater, visual arts, critical practice, and performance to play with social difficulties, theatricalize historic problems, and imagine ways of being together. Realized as drawings, texts, masks, videos, music, installations, and audience interactions, their projects employ fantasy, humor, and clashing aesthetic sensibilities to cleverly critique artistic, political, and social situations. The duo creates and performs a new work, Star Choir, which was developed while serving as Armory artists-in-residence. Combining vocals and a mix of orchestral and electronic instruments with animated video projection, this multifaceted project tracks a group of humans who attempt to colonize a distant planet after the earth’s decline.
