Jeffrey Gibson: Breakdown, 2018

Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University

Breakdown (2018) by Jeffrey Gibson (U.S.A., b. 1972), who is of Mississippi Choctaw and Cherokee heritage, is the first object by the artist to enter the Cantor's collection. Gibson's piece adds to the Cantor's representation of Native American artists and diversifies the museum's contemporary American art offerings.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Jeffrey Gibson: Breakdown, 2018 :

Jeffrey Gibson, an artist of Mississippi Choctaw and Cherokee heritage who has lived in urban centers all over the world, combines modern painting techniques with traditional Native bead work to create artworks that merge history and aesthetics, creating expertly crafted commentaries on the presence and/or absence of Native American artists in contemporary art and its institutions.
