Wednesday night, Don't miss: DIA Gallery talk with artist Matthew Barney (Bjork's brilliant hubby).

He's back ...

Boundary-pushing artist Matthew Barney is in the midst of producing a series of performances and music (with composer Jonathan Bepler) for his new project, which, we hear, is a seven act, seven location, opera that draws its inspiration from Norman Mailer's 1983 novel, Ancient Evening. One act, "Khu," is set in Detroit.

Akin to his highly revered work Cremaster Cycle, Barney's recent also plays with themes pulled from Egyptian ritualism.

Barney will be speaking tomorrow night at the Detroit Film Theatre inside The Detroit Institute of Arts. This event is free and open to anyone holding a free pass. Seating is general admission; pass (want a free pass?) must be presented at registration for entrance to the lecture.

Lecture starts at 7 p.m.

Enter off of John. R.
