Jennie Jieun Lee
PAFA is pleased to welcome artist Jennie Jieun Lee to campus for the Spring 2020 Visiting Artists Program series.
PAFA's Visiting Artists Program is a student-run program that brings a roster of local, national and international artists to campus for lectures, critiques, and workshops. The program exposes students and the public to a range of artistic approaches and fosters discussion about contemporary art and ideas.
Jennie Jieun Lee is a Korean American artist who uses clay and other materials to mimic, articulate and interpret emotional and psychological spaces. While weaving personal narratives into her sculptures and installations to emphasize textural accumulations of memory and the fragility of mortality, she continues to explore different practices and methods in these materials.
Her work has been shown extensively throughout the world with solo and two person shows at Marlborough Contemporary: Viewing Room, New York, NY; Martos Gallery, New York, NY; 11R, New York, NY; Cooper Cole, Toronto, Canada; Galerie Lefebvre et fils, Paris, France; The Pit, Glendale, CA; Halsey McKay, East Hampton, NY along with groups shows at Jonathan Viner, London, UK; Shulamit Nazarian, LA, CA; Brand New Gallery, Milan, Italy and several more.
Jennie is a recipient of the 2017 John Simon Guggenheim fellowship and the 2019 Art Matters Grant.
