All artwork is comprised of a variety of influences. In Speak to Me, his solo exhibition opening Thursday, Feb. 9 at Oklahoma Contemporary, multimedia artist Jeffrey Gibson literally spells out some of his.
Gibson’s practice includes painting, sculpture, fiber, ceramics, video and performance, and Speak to Me features recent works that draw upon, among other things, his Native American heritage (Choctaw and Cherokee). Many of the pieces also incorporate texts with personal resonance for Gibson: Lyrics from pop, house music and rap and some of Gibson’s own words are beaded into the art.
A media kit, including the press release, a portrait of the artist and high-resolution images of his works, is at bit.ly/OCGibsonKit. Interviews with artists the curator and other artistic staff can be organized through Director of Communications Lori Brooks (firstname.lastname@example.org). (Feb. 7, 2017)
