Barbara Bloom and Rebecca Matalon in Conversation


Décor: Barbara Bloom, Andrea Fraser, Louise Lawler presents works from MOCA’s permanent collection that play with the presentation and display of art, including Bloom’s rarely seen The Reign of Narcissism (1988-89). On view at the museum for the first time in over twenty years, the large-scale installation was commissioned for MOCA’s celebrated 1989 exhibition A Forest of Signs: Art in the Crisis of Representation. On the occasion of Décor, the New York-based artist joins Curatorial Associate Rebecca Matalon to discuss the history of the work and, more broadly, her conceptually minded approach to art making.
