The performance THE SPIRITS REFUSE WITHOUT A BODY will activate the garments and helmets Jeffrey Gibson produced for his New Museum residency and exhibition THE ANTHROPOPHAGIC EFFECT.
Gibson’s work in the show is directly inspired by Indigenous handcraft techniques and aesthetics, and reflect his research into Southeastern river cane basket weaving, Algonquian birch bark biting, and porcupine quillwork.
Thursday, February 21, at 7 pm.
Through June 9.
235 Bowery, New York City.
