Creative Conversations: Jeffrey Gibson and Dyani White Hawk

Online 28 April 2022
Online 7 - 8 PM EST

Join the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto on Thursday, April 28th from 7-8 PM EST for an online conversation featuring exhibiting artist, Jeffrey Gibson, and contemporary artist and curator, Dyani White Hawk. The two will reflect on Gibson’s most recent installation I AM YOUR RELATIVE, examining both the work and the title through means of their own experiences and understanding of the imagery and phrasing. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A.

 

I AM YOUR RELATIVE by Gibson is a site-specific project co-commissioned by MOCA and the Toronto Biennial of Art. The work consists of a series of brightly coloured stages that can be moved and reconfigured for spontaneous gatherings and organized performances within the Museum. Cut-out shapes allow views into, and out of, the semi-private enclosures these arrangements create. The shapes reflect the formal language that Gibson uses in his paintings, beadwork, and patterns and are in configurations that seem like symbols for communication.
