Jean Shin: Collections

Saturday, March 24 through Sunday, July 15

Art Parkway District

Intimate objects, monumental stories

Contemporary artist Jean Shin (American, born South Korea 1971) transforms everyday objects—worn-out shoes, fashion remnants, military uniforms—to create dynamic works about connection and belonging. Her installations, often made from donated and discarded materials, raise provocative questions about what, and how, we consume.

On view in this exhibition are six large-scale installations and a video that tell powerful stories about the military, the fashion industry, and Shin’s own Asian American community.
