PARK CITY, Utah — Renowned artist Lee Mingwei’s exhibition, “The Gifts of Connection,” will open at the Kimball Art Center this Friday, Nov. 17, at 6 p.m. This event allows attendees to engage with Lee’s thought-provoking installations that explore the power of everyday interactions.
The exhibition features four of Mingwei’s celebrated works: “The Mending Project,” “The Tourist,” “The Living Room,” and “100 Days with Lily.” Each installation invites participants to delve into interconnection, trust, and intimacy themes. One of the highlights of Mingwei’s art is its adaptability, as it evolves and transforms through the involvement of various participants, ensuring a unique experience for each visitor throughout the exhibition’s duration.
Born in Taiwan in 1964, Mingwei currently resides in Paris, Taipei, and New York. His participatory installations go beyond the traditional gallery experience. In addition, he conducts one-on-one experiences where he engages visitors through everyday activities such as eating, sleeping, writing, and conversing.
“The Mending Project” was created by Mingwei in response to 9/11. “As we grapple with the tragic events in Israel and Palestine, we acknowledge many similarities between that time and today,” said Aldy Milliken, Kimball Art Center executive director, in a press release. “We feel strength in offering an exhibition designed to build connections and to share stories through art.”
