Harry Dodge, Anna Sew Hoy, and Lanka Tattersall


Los Angeles–based sculptors Harry Dodge and Anna Sew Hoy join MOCA Assistant Curator Lanka Tattersall in conversation about Matthew Barney: RIVER OF FUNDAMENT. Focusing on Barney’s large-scale sculptures, they will discuss the works’ complex engagement with ancient, modern, and contemporary sculptural techniques and traditions. The talk will explore the casting process, studio experimentation, the relay between figuration and abstraction, and the social dimensions of monumentally-scaled sculpture.
