Look How Far We've Come!

Jeffrey Gibson

Drawing influence from popular music, fashion, literature, cultural and critical theory, and his own heritage, Jeffrey Gibson's work recontextualizes the familiar to offer a succinct commentary on cultural hybridity and the assimilation of modernist artistic strategies within contemporary art. Gibson is currently a Visiting Artist at Bard College, New York. Gibson is represented by MARC STRAUS (NY) and Roberts & Tilton (LA).
