Multidisciplinary artist Jeffrey Gibson utilizes the visual languages of modernism as a critical tool, making use of bold geometry, vibrant colors, and graphic elements to illuminate the complexity of culture, history, and self. Join Curatorial Assistant Krista Alba on a tour that spotlights Gibson’s use of mid-century artistic styles in his oeuvre—such as minimalism, color field painting, and abstract expressionism—and uncover why something as simple as a triangle or a gestural mark can wield multiple meanings and influences.
