Tour of Jeffrey Gibson: Infinite Indigenous Queer Love with Senior Curator Sarah Montross

Explore Jeffrey Gibson’s vibrant artistry while delving into pivotal topics of Indigenous culture, queer kinship, and the pleasures and challenges of working with collage and painting in this exhibition tour led by Senior Curator Sarah Montross. Gain behind-the-scenes insights into the creation and meaning of Gibson’s massive hanging fringe cube sculptures designed in radiant colors. The fringe, typically a feature of Indigenous dance regalia, is transformed into primary volumetric shapes. These vivid, monolithic forms will dominate the darkened gallery, posing an exploration into queer abstraction, a merging of hard-edge shapes and soft, fluid materiality.
