Jeffrey Gibson's "This Is The Day" At The Wellin Museum

large-scale sculptural garments draped on tipi poles - "This is the Day" by Jeffrey Gibson

Artist Jeffrey Gibson uses his art to reflect on his Choctaw and Cherokee heritage as a means of exploring the significance, traditions, and rituals of personal adornment and identity.

Gibson’s multidisciplinary practice encompasses a wide range of mediums and draws on a variety of influences and visual languages to comment on race, sexuality, religion, and gender, among other topical issues. He combines popular and queer culture with references to Native American history and current events.

His new exhibition, “This Is the Day” is on view at the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York through December 9.

Tracy Adler is The Johnson-Pote Director of The Wellin Museum and curator of this exhibition.
