Join us for the debut of the performance "Don't Make Me Over" by Jeffrey Gibson, a Choctaw-Cherokee painter and sculptor. Gibson’s performances activate his sculptural practice and address far-ranging questions about language, identity, and history. He received a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago, and an MFA from the Royal College of Art. He currently is an Artist-in-Residence at Bard College, where he also teaches Studio Art. Among other venues, his work has been exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, the Bronx Museum, the National Gallery of Canada, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. 

Gibson’s performance at Tufts is presented in tandem with his work included in "A Decolonial Atlas: Strategies in Contemporary Art of the Americas," on view at the Tufts University Art Galleries in Medford.
