Malik Gaines is a writer and performer based in Los Angeles. Gaines performs with the group My Barbarian, which has presented experimental musicals in theaters and art institutions internationally, at venues including the REDCAT and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Participant, Inc., New York; De Appel, Amsterdam; The Power Plant, Toronto; Peres Projects, Berlin; El Matadero, Madrid; and the Aspen Art Museum, Aspen. Gaines has written arts journalism and criticism for numerous publications and exhibition catalogues, and has taught courses at CalArts, UC Irvine, California College of the Arts, and others.

My Barbarian is a Los Angeles-based performance collective founded in 2000 by Malik Gaines, Jade Gordon and Alexandro Segade. The trio performs in site-specific plays, musical concerts, theatrical situations and produces video installations that play with the spectacular while engaging viewers critically. Their interdisciplinary projects explore and exhume cross-cultural mishaps and misadventures drawn from history, mythology, art and popular culture.
