Jeffrey Gibson incorporates elements of Native American art and craft into his practice, creating a dialogue between his work and the histories that inform it. For the exhibition the artist has selected objects from the collection at Brooklyn Museum, and presents them alongside his recent work. The large-scale multimedia installation questions long-held institutional categorisations and representations of Indigenous peoples and Native American art.
Works on view include garments, beaded punching bags, paintings on hide and canvas, and ceramic vessels. Collection objects include moccasins, headdresses, ceramics, rawhide, and examples of beadwork and appliqué.
