Meet interdisciplinary artist Jeffrey Gibson (Mississippi Band of Choctaw and Cherokee), based in Hudson, NY. He was named a MacArthur “Genius” grant winner for 2019. His work makes reference to various aesthetic and material histories rooted in Indigenous cultures of the Americas, and in modern and contemporary subcultures. Two solo museum exhibitions of his work are traveling around the country this fall: Jeffrey Gibson, LIKE A HAMMER, organized by the Denver Art Museum, and This Is The Day, organized by The Wellin Museum.

Gibson took part in the Whitney Biennial and exhibitions at MassMoCA, The Esker Foundation, The National Portrait Gallery, Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona and the Brooklyn Museum. Gibson’s work is on view in both major exhibitions at the Nasher Museum this fall: Cosmic Rhythm Vibrations and Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now. One of Gibson’s sculptures, I PUT A SPELL ON YOU, is part of the Nasher Museum’s collection. He is also a member of the faculty at Bard College.
