As communities’ concerns about persistent environmental issues have escalated, artists have been uniquely positioned to actively respond, collaborating with engineers, designers, landscape architects, ecologists, historians and other professionals to bridge the gap between science, art and activism. Wave Hill stands at the center of this shift, providing the impetus for Wave Hill’s summer exhibition that features projects by artists, collectives, and organizations that have initiated environmental projects.

Born in South Korea and raised in the United States, Jean Shin currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. 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.
