Matthew Barney is best known as the producer and creator of the "CREMASTER" films. The title of the films refers to the muscle that raises and lowers the male reproductive system according to temperature, external stimulation, or fear. The films themselves are a grand mixture of history, autobiography, and mythology—a universe in which symbols are densely layered and interconnected.

Matthew Barney is featured in the Season 1 episode "Consumption" of the Art21 series "Art:21 -- Art in the Twenty-First Century".
