    Double Agency consists of a new episodic video series, ephemeral exhibition, and performance by My Barbarian that will unfold during the first month of celebrations for LACMA’s 50th anniversary. My Barbarian’s performances and installations have often blurred genres and mediums. In Double Agency, the group takes on espionage and spy thrillers, with a particular nod to the original Mission Impossible series, activating LACMA’s architecture and permanent collection with a storyline that features masks, doppelgangers, and shifting identities in order to dramatize tensions between artistic objects and living subjects. My Barbarian has been commissioned by the museum to produce this new work on the occasion of LACMA’s anniversary and will be present to perform a ceremonial launch of the ephemeral exhibition Masks of the World.
    My Barbarian is made up of Malik Gaines, Jade Gordon and Alexandro Segade, although they frequently collaborate with other artists, musicians and filmmakers. Their performances, sculptures, drawings and videos have been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New Museum, Hammer Museum, San Francisco MoMA, and the ICA Philadelphia, among other venues.
