Roberts & Tilton is pleased to announce its representation of Jeffrey Gibson. Drawing influence from popular music, fashion, literature, cultural and critical theory, and his own individual heritage, Gibson’s work recontextualizes the familiar to offer a succinct commentary on cultural hybridity and the assimilation of modernist artistic strategies within contemporary art. The artist’s debut exhibition with Roberts & Tilton will open in Fall 2017.
September 23 – December 4, 2016
