Jeffrey Gibson


Renowned Cherokee-Choctaw artist Jeffrey Gibson (b.1972, Colorado)  combines intricate ancestral and contemporary craft to reflect on popular culture, consumerism, Native identity, fashion and music. The multidisciplinary artist’s well known aesthetic deconstructs preconceived and commercialized archetypes through a style that can be described as 90s club kid meets global Indigeneity.


Jeffrey Gibson is represented in the permanent collections of over twenty museums including Denver Art Museum; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK; Portland Museum of Art; High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Seattle Art Museum; and Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.

In 2019, Gibson was awarded the MacArthur Fellow “Genius Grant.” He holds a MA from the Royal College of Art, London, a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Claremont Graduate University, Claremont, CA. Gibson is currently a Visiting Artist at Bard College, NY.
