Lee Mingwei, artist
New York–based Taiwanese artist Lee Mingwei is known for participatory installations exploring issues of trust, intimacy, and social connection—giving a flower to a stranger, writing a letter to a loved one, or mending a garment. His art transforms such generous gestures into metaphors for the power of human creativity and relationships. Premiering in the United States at the MFA this spring, Lee’s Sonic Blossom invites Museum visitors to receive the personal gift of a song from an opera singer. Learn more from Lee about his groundbreaking art practice over the past two decades, including the essential role audiences play in creating his art.
