Jeffrey Gibson: The Body Electric

SITE Santa Fe is pleased to present The Body Electric, a solo exhibition spanning Jeffrey Gibson’s multi-decade practice. Gibson’s merging of artistic styles, and historical and contemporary cultural references synergizes to create vibrant, multilayered works of art that express the complexities and relationships between injustice, marginalization, and personal identity.

The Body Electric features a survey of the artist’s painting, sculpture and installation, as well as newly commissioned works including the performance To Name An Other and a large scale mural, THE LAND IS SPEAKING ARE YOU LISTENING, activating SITE Santa Fe’s front lobby and main galleries.

Jeffrey Gibson (b.1972, Colorado) is a celebrated multidisciplinary artist whose works are represented in over 20 permanent collections across the US. He is a member of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and half Cherokee.
