At the New Museum this Saturday, curator and writer Glenn Adamson and art historian Julia Bryan-Wilson will sit down for a conversation linked to Jeffrey Gibson’s exhibition The Anthrophagic Effect. The two will discuss Gibson’s Indigenous craft techniques, employed in both his residency as well as the exhibition. Gibson’s exhibition explores the material histories and futures of Indigenous handcrafts such as Southeastern river cane basket weaving, Algonquian birch bark biting, porcupine quillwork, and more.

Saturday’s conversation between Adamson and Bryan-Wilson will focus on these craft techniques within the context of a larger design framework, exploring the history of design in the process. Tickets for the event can be purchased for $15 here, or $10 for members.

When: Saturday, March 16, 3 pm

Where: New Museum, 235 Bowery, Bowery, Manhattan
