Lee Mingwei

Lee Mingwei was born in Taiwan and currently lives and works in New York City.  He creates participatory installations around the globe, with which visitors are invited to explore issues of trust, intimacy, generosity, and temporality.  Following Mingwei’s public lecture hosted by RISD Glass, students visited Mingwei at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, where they witnessed his piece Sonic Blossom firsthand, and discussed their experience with the artist afterward.  They also visited his ongoing installation Living Room in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
