Jeff Gibson is an Australian-born artist and occasional critic who has worked in a variety of media and contexts—photography, collage, video, prints, posters, banners, and books for galleries and public spaces. Gibson moved to New York in 1998 to work for Artforum magazine, where he has been the managing editor since 2004. Since arriving in New York, he has 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, and Theodore. In 2011, two of the artist’s videos were projected onto the facade of the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, New York, as part of a curated series presented by Light Work and the Urban Video Project.
His video Metapoetaestheticism was exhibited in the 2014 Whitney Biennial. In 2016, Gibson produced a billboard, titled Armagarden, for the I-70 Sign Show, a curated program of artworks occupying advertising sites on the Missouri interstate. Gibson’s work was also included in the “Digital Infinity” section of the 2018 Front International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art. And in June of this year, the Griffith University Art Museum in Brisbane, Australia, staged a survey show of Gibson’s art, titled “Countertypes,” featuring a selection of works spanning 1980 to the present.
