For this livestreamed event, all are invited to make a virtual visit to the studio of painter John Gibson, whose work is currently featured in BMAC’s large exterior windows through 2021.

For more than 30 years, Gibson has focused primarily on paintings of balls, often decorated with dots or stripes. For his BMAC installation, titled Jazz, Gibson explains, “I began to work with pieces of paintings that might or might not be connected to each other behind the stone walls between the windows. This created an illusion that giant balls were actually inside the Museum, rolling around in the galleries.”

Gibson holds a B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design and an M.F.A. from Yale University. His work is exhibited regularly, including solo exhibitions in Paris, New York, and San Francisco, and is included in the public collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
