Jeffrey Gibson: Like A Hammer
Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, WA - To May 12
Only 47, Jeffrey Gibson has been hailed among the few Native American artists who have not only drawn upon Indigenous traditions, but also totally assimilated postwar abstract American art. He blends these influences with pop music lyrics and queer disco culture into a hybrid of tribal sculpture, political text-titles, video and dance. Gibson was educated at the Royal College of Art, and Like a Hammer is his nationally touring show of work created since 2011.
