Esker Foundation is pleased to present the Canadian Premiere of the solo exhibition Time Carriers and special performance To Name An Other by New York-based artist Jeffrey Gibson. Opening reception: Friday 27 September, 6-10pm, all welcome. Jeffrey Gibson’s artwork intermingles elements of traditional Native American art, art historical references, craft, and pop culture. A wide range of both historic and contemporary Native American symbols and objects including powwow regalia, 19th century parfleche containers, and drums are seamlessly merged with elements from Modernist geometric abstraction, Minimalism, the pattern and decoration of traditional textile practices, as well as techno, rave, and club culture.
