    Jeffrey Gibson: ONCE MORE WITH FEELING

    June 1-July 22, 2023

    Jessica Silverman is pleased to announce Jeffrey Gibson: ONCE MORE WITH FEELING, the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, running from June 1 to July 22, 2023. This exhibition will premiere nine new collages, incorporating found objects and images, beadwork, and textiles into intricate arrangements. Concurrent to the exhibition is the solo museum exhibition Jeffrey Gibson: THE SPIRITS ARE LAUGHING at Aspen Art Museum on view through November 5, 2023, as well as the launch of An Indigenous Present, a book conceived and edited by the artist.

    Drawing on his Cherokee and Choctaw heritage throughout his varied practice, Gibson has turned to collage as a medium towards both self-discovery and inquiry into consumption, empowerment, and non-Western modes of relating to one another. The artist collects offcuts, paper scraps, objects, and imagery and stores them over decades in his studio. He assembles these disparate items to create new works, relating forgotten materials to the fractured history of Native peoples.
