Lange & Söhne is known for its lavishly created and handmade watches. Regarded as one of the world’s finest watch brands, it’s New York Madison Avenue boutique (one of just a few in the world) is now showing a new series by artist Jeffrey Gibson. The intimate exhibition, on view through the end of August, is curated by Marc Straus Gallery.
Gibson is a Brooklyn-based artist originally from Colorado and part of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and half Cherokee. Gibson’s heritage deeply influences his work. His practice intermingles elements of traditional Native American Art with pop culture references. The beaded wall hangings displayed at A. Lange & Söhne’s flagship are embroidered with political slogans and song lyrics that ring personally to Gibson. He doesn’t consider it an activist voice, however, hoping the wall hangings stand as a symbol calls for social progression for a more inclusive future, like one that reads, “Every little bit counts.”
Recently, on June 24, A. Lange & Söhne celebrated their Jeffrey Gibson exhibition by hosting a seated-dinner with their top clients in attendance. The crowd enjoyed champagne from key sponsor Nicholas Feuillate, and enjoyed all things art—watches, food, and embroidered wall hangings included.
