Jeffrey Gibson Virtual Artist Talk
Wed. Oct 28, 5pm EDT
Register for free tickets

2019 MacArthur Genius Grant winner Jeffrey Gibson (b. 1972, USA) combines Native American traditions with the visual languages of Modernism to explore the contemporary confluence of personal identity, culture, history, and international social narratives. Gibson is a member of the Choctaw and Cherokee nations. He currently lives and works in Hudson, New York. One of his most recognized series involves punching bags that Gibson deftly transforms into aesthetic totems. Another of Gibson’s long running series involves an examination of transformational garments. A selection of these garments were exhibited in the 2019 Whitney Biennial.
