Jeffrey Gibson Exhibit
Jeffrey Gibson: Like A Hammer - At MMoCA  
June 8 - September 15, 2019
Main Galleries, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art
227 State Street, Madison (Overture Center)

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.
