Jeffrey Gibson Speak To Me Exhibition at Oklahoma Contemporary Museum

Jeffrey Gibson, 2016
16 x 16.25 x 3.125 inches

Jeffrey Gibson will have a one person showcase at the Oklahoma Contemporary Museum from Feburary 9th to June 11th.

The centerpiece of Speak to Me is a video, titled one becomes the other, that Gibson produced during a residency at the Denver Art Museum. one becomes the other brought together members of the Denver pow wow community with objects from the museum’s vast Native American collection. The video shows a series of conversations between the individual dancers and their chosen objects. The objects are addressed as living beings, and the expected notion that they are inanimate objects only to be looked at is subverted through the unscripted and genuine dialogue captured in the video.
