Jeff Gibson: Countertypes

Jeff Gibson: Countertypes

CLASS 00000

‘Jeff Gibson: Countertypes’ considers one of Australian art’s most significant voices in contemporary art. Jeff Gibson (b.1958) is a Brisbane-born, New York-based artist who has worked in a variety of media and contexts— photography, video, prints, posters, banners, and books for galleries and public spaces.
Shaped by his upbringing amidst punk and new wave culture in Brisbane and Toowoomba in the late 1970-80s, Gibson’s 40 year career has contributed to an international shift in the way photographic imagery is engaged with as art. Forging what is known today as ‘image-based art’, Gibson is a leading exponent of digital image-based art that incorporates and analyses mass-media imagery, elevating appropriation, quotation, excerptation, juxtaposition and staging as crucial artistic strategies. Such treatments have their roots in postmodern ‘Pictures’ art, but they remain integral today for any artist interested in examining the influence of social media and the World Wide Web.
