Alex Gibson

Barbados

Alex Gibson (b. 1994) is a Barbadian visual artist based in Vancouver, BC and as a guest on the un-ceded territories of the Tsleil-Waututh, Musqueam, and Skwxwu7mesh First Nations. They are interested in investigating queer themes and sentiments in relation to their Caribbean background, primarily working in animation and drawing. Through the exploration of gender and identity, Gibson’s practice seeks to reveal new/alternate realities of queer Caribbean potentials, while simultaneously using escapism as a means of self-preservation. Through the creation of new potentials, they are interested in investigating means to decolonize heteronormative Caribbean sexuality to make space for queerness. Most recently their works have been exhibited at Tomato Mouse, New York; CBC Arts and Canada; Wil Aballe Art Projects, Vancouver.
