Breakdown (2018) by Jeffrey Gibson (U.S.A., b. 1972), who is of Mississippi Choctaw and Cherokee heritage, is the first object by the artist to enter the Cantor’s collection. Gibson’s piece adds to the Cantor’s representation of Native American artists and diversifies the museum’s contemporary American art offerings.
