BY PALM SPRINGS ART MUSEUM

Gibson is a multidisciplinary artist of Cherokee heritage and a citizen of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. Known for his paintings, sculptures, videos, and performances, Gibson combines references to Native American traditions with the visual languages of Modernism to explore the confluence of queer identity, popular culture, race, and social narratives. Based in Hudson, New York, Gibson is a recipient of a 2019 MacArthur Foundation “Genius” grant.
