From September 20, 2014 to January 4, 2015, the Mori Art Museum will be hosting “Lee Mingwei and His Relations.” Since the late 1990s, Lee Mingwei (b. 1964), a Taiwan-born artist living in New York, has worked on numerous art projects that involve the participation of an audience in some form or another and participated in countless international exhibitions. “Lee Mingwei and His Relations” will be the first major exhibition enabling visitors to experience comprehensively the most important works of his to date. At the same time, “reference works” by such artists as Hakuin, D. T. Suzuki, Yves Klein, Allan Kaprow, Rirkrit Tiravanija and Ozawa Tsuyoshi that provide clues to understanding the historical and cultural context of Lee’s work will also be exhibited.
A number of Lee’s works will come to completion through the participation of you, the audience. Participate in various works and explore with us in the meaning of “connections.”
