M+B is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Mark Thomas Gibson, the artist’s second solo show with the gallery. The exhibition runs from October 23 through December 4, 2021, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 23 from 6 to 8 pm. Press Release coming soon.
Mark Thomas Gibson’s personal lens on American culture stems from his multipartite viewpoint as an artist—as a black male, a professor, an American history buff and comic book aficionado. These myriad and often colliding perspectives fuel his exploration of contemporary culture through languages of painting and the comic book vernacular, revealing a vision of a dystopic America where every viewer is implicated as a potential character within the story.
Mark Thomas Gibson (b. 1980, Miami, FL) received his BFA from The Cooper Union in 2002 and his MFA from Yale University School of Art in 2013. Gibson’s work was most recently on view in Shifting Gaze: A Reconstruction of the Black and Hispanic Body in Contemporary Art, Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art at Virginia Beach. This summer his work will be featured in THIS IS AMERICA at Kunstraum Potsdam in Germany. Other recent group show venues include the Contemporary Art Museum, University of South Florida, Tampa; Gladstone Gallery, New York, and Jeffrey Deitch in New York.
