Artist’s Project: Jeff Gibson


Mesmerizing photocollages are juxtaposed by the artist with pages of flora and fauna from 20th-century encyclopedias.

 Jeff Gibson is an Australian-born artist and occasional critic who has worked in a variety of media and contexts—collage, digital graphics, photography, video, prints, posters, banners, and books for galleries, websites, and public spaces. A former senior editor of Art & Text magazine, Gibson moved to New York in 1998 to work for Artforum, where he is currently managing editor. Since arriving in New York, he has produced two artist’s books—Dupe: A Partial Compendium of Everyday Delusions (2000) and Sarsaparilla to Sorcery (2007), exhibited on the Panasonic Astrovision screen in Times Square as part of Creative Time’s “59th Minute” program, and mounted solo shows at the New York Academy of Sciences; Stephan Stoyanov, LMAK, and Theodore (all New York);  and The Suburban (Chicago and Milwaukee). In June 2022, the Griffith University Art Museum in Brisbane, Australia, staged a survey show of Gibson's art, titled Countertypes, that featured a selection of works spanning 1980 to the then present.
