Jeffrey Gibson Reviewed on New York Times

Jeffrey Gibson reviewed by Carol Kino in The New York Times article, “At Peace With Many Tribes.” Carol Kino writes, “‘The way we describe identity here is so reductive,’ Mr. Gibson said. ‘It never bleeds into seeing you as a more multifaceted person.’ But now ‘I’m finally at the point where I can feel comfortable being your introduction’ to American Indian culture, he added. ‘It’s just a huge acceptance of self.’ Judging from Mr. Gibson’s growing number of exhibitions, self-acceptance has done his work a lot of good. In addition to the National Academy exhibition, ‘Said the Pigeon to the Squirrel,’ which opens Thursday and runs through Sept. 8, his pieces can be seen in four other places.”
