“It's a continuation of me exploring movement… A lot of the physical materials I use in my artwork originate in dance regalia in the powwow circuit. I wanted to see the differences between people. How are we moving differently? How do we move the same? How does trauma impact how we move? How does confidence impact how we move?” – Jeffrey Gibson
The Center for Art & Public Exchange at the Mississippi Museum of Art unveils and examines an in-process cut of WonderLust, a new projected video artwork by New York-based artist Jeffrey Gibson created as part of a Summer 2018 residency in Jackson, Mississippi.
This half-day program includes a keynote conversation with the artist; breakout sessions in the galleries of Jeffrey Gibson: Like A Hammer; roundtable discussion with project participants and the public; and the premiere of an in-process cut of WonderLust. WonderLust is an approximately 18-minute video artwork in which a group of diverse Mississippians from the LGBTQ community perform original characters and movements articulating the scars and strengths that allow them to survive and thrive in the contemporary South.
