Jeffrey Gibson Biography:
Drawing influence from popular music, fashion, literature, cultural and critical theory, and his own heritage, Jeffrey Gibson's work re-contextualizes the familiar to offer a succinct commentary on cultural hybridity and the assimilation of modernist artistic strategies within contemporary art.
Gibson has solo exhibitions currently on view at the Haggerty Museum, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the Oklahoma Contemporary, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, as well as forthcoming exhibitions at the Rochester Art Center, Rochester, Minnesota (Summer 2017); the Wellin Museum of Art, Clinton, New York (September 2018); and a mid-career survey at the Denver Art Museum, Denver, Colorado (March 2018). Gibson is represented in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Smithsonian's National Museum of The American Indian; the National Gallery of Canada; the Nasher Museum, North Carolina; the Nerman Museum, Kansas; the Newark Museum of Art, New Jersey; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Arkansas; and the Denver Art Museum. He is currently a visiting artist at Bard College, New York, and is represented by Roberts & Tilton (Louisiana).
