As an immigrant from Seoul who was raised in America, Shin views the celadon fragments as a metaphor of the Korean diaspora, vibrant artifacts of the Korean people, their history and culture that are scattered all over the world to form new identities elsewhere.

Jean Shin: Inclusions

May 16, 2015 - October 18, 2015

Jean Shin: Inclusions presents a selection of Shin’s work in video, installation, photography, and mixed media.  The title of the exhibition draws attention to the inclusive nature of her artistic practice, which relies heavily on accumulating large quantities of material or objects that would otherwise be considered humble remnants, useless cast-offs, or unnoticed entirely.

Jean Shin: Collections

March 22, 2018 - July 15, 2018

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.
