Hear from Jean Shin—the subject of our new exhibition Jean Shin: Collections—about how she explores ideas of self and community. Joseph Gonzales, Executive Director of The Delaware Contemporary, moderates this “In the Artist’s Voice” conversation. A reception with the artist follows.
March 24, 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.
