One Becomes the Other

Jeffrey Gibson

Artist Jeffrey Gibson will share his interdisciplinary artworks and his personal background in this illustrated talk. He will discuss how he combines his interests in traditional Indigenous historical objects, modernist art movements, and found objects in order to make paintings, sculptures, and installations that merge multiple aesthetic histories into new and singular hybrid forms. Gibson will also talk about his new installation of thirty rawhide covered and painted cement blocks made specifically for the Fiction/Non-fiction exhibition.
