Jean Shin: Collections at the Philadelphia Museum of Art 

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.

Her works have been shown at more than 150 museums and cultural institutions, including in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC. In 2016 she completed a landmark commission, Elevated, for New York City’s Second Avenue subway
