Jeffrey Gibson is an interdisciplinary artist based in Hudson, NY.

Two solo museum exhibitions of his work are traveling this fall: Jeffrey Gibson, LIKE A HAMMER, organized by the Denver Art Museum, and This Is The Day, organized by The Wellin Museum.
Gibson took part in the Whitney Biennial and exhibitions at MassMoCA, The Esker Foundation, The National Portrait Gallery, Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona and the Brooklyn Museum. Gibson's work is on view in both major exhibitions at the Nasher Museum this fall: Cosmic Rhythm Vibrations and Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now. One of Gibson's sculptures, I PUT A SPELL ON YOU, is part of the Nasher Museum's collection. He is also a member of the faculty at Bard College.
