Join us for a Family Day inspired by the exhibition “Jeffrey Gibson: The Anthropophagic Effect,” on view at the New Museum from February 13 to June 9, 2019. Using Indigenous handcraft techniques learned over the course of his residency, Gibson has created a new set of garments and helmets for his exhibition in the Fifth Floor Gallery. By engaging with these techniques in a contemporary context, families are encouraged to draw inspiration from these new works. Using natural and other materials, families will weave together sculptural forms of their own.
