Jeffrey Gibson: I AM YOUR RELATIVE
'I AM YOUR RELATIVE' is a multi-purpose installation featuring 15 moveable stages that populate the Museum’s Floor 1. Co-commissioned by MOCA and the Toronto Biennial of Art (TBA), the surface of the stages become an archive over time as they are covered with posters created by Jeffrey Gibson that incorporate text and images from local historical archives and from the public. This visual archive, which prioritises Indigenous, Black, Brown and queer voices, speaks to what histories are remembered and how.
The project is a catalyst for valuable community and professional creative relationships that inform moments of activation throughout the run of the project. Over the course of the exhibition, the stages host artists’ performances, talks, workshops and gatherings, amplifying community voices past and present and supported through robust research, coordination, production.
