Jean Shin: Collections

Exhibition / United States
March 22, 2018 - July 15, 2018
Philadelphia Museum of Art
2600 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy | Philadelphia, PA 

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.
