MMoCA is pleased to announce the 2019 presentation of artist Jeffrey Gibson's first major museum exhibition. Organized by the Denver
Art Museum (DAM), Jeffrey Gibson: Like a Hammer showcases the artist's highly acclaimed multi-disciplinary work and chronicles
a pivotal moment in Gibson's career when his contemporary
artistic practice converged with his Choctaw and Cherokee heritage. The exhibition will reveal how Gibson, a gay Colorado-born artist,
derives inspiration from a multitude of sources, ranging from pan-Native American visual culture to his involvement as a young adult
in the queer club scene.
The exhibition features about 65 objects comprising large and mid-sized figurative works, text-based wall hangings, a significant
selection of his illustrious Everlast beaded punching bags, painted works on rawhide and canvas, as well as videos.
