Between 1994 and 2002 he created the Cremaster Cycle, a series of five feature-length films described by Jonathan Jones in The Guardian as "one of the most imaginative and brilliant achievements in the history of avant-garde cinema."

Barney has exhibited at San Francisco MoMA, The Guggenheim, and Tate Modern, among other international institutions.
