Open House: Threading Memories / MiKyoung Lee

Join the artist MiKyoung Lee and the exhibition curator Zoe S. Kwok, Nancy and Peter Lee Associate Curator of Asian Art, to celebrate the opening of Threading Memories / MiKyoung Lee at Art@Bainbridge.  

Using common, mass-produced products such as pipe cleaners, zip ties, and twist ties, the artist MiKyoung Lee creates dynamic large-scale sculptures and intimate wall-mounted works. Lee’s art explores memories from her childhood and from later chapters of her life, evocatively commenting on our collective human mode of processing, cataloging, and revisiting the past.  

Art@Bainbridge is made possible through the generous support of the Virginia and Bagley Wright, Class of 1946, Program Fund for Modern and Contemporary Art; the Kathleen C. Sherrerd Program Fund for American Art; Joshua R. Slocum, Class of 1998, and Sara Slocum; Rachelle Belfer Malkin, Class of 1986, and Anthony E. Malkin; Barbara and Gerald Essig; Gene Locks, Class of 1959, and Sueyun Locks; and Ivy Beth Lewis. Additional support for this exhibition is provided by Nancy C. Lee, the P. Y. and Kinmay W. Tang Center for East Asian Art, the Department of East Asian Studies, and the Program in Asian American Studies.
