"Jeffrey Gibson, known in the art world as one of the most exciting American Indian contemporary artists, will hold his first major exhibition at the Denver Art Museum May 13-Aug. 12, 2018.

“Jeffery Gibson: Like a Hammer,” will feature about 65 objects comprising large and mid-sized figurative works, text-based wall hangings, “a significant selection of his illustrious Everlast beaded punching bags,” painted works on rawhide and canvas, and videos, according to officials at the Denver Art Museum.

The 45-year-old, Colorado-born artist (now based in New York) “is widely recognized as a unique and influential voice in contemporary art as well as within Native American art circles, and we are eager to present his first major museum exhibition, which is bold in both color and scale,” said Christoph Heinrich, director of the Denver Art Museum, in a press statement."
