Description: Speaker: Lee Mingwei, artist

Description: Born in Taiwan in 1964 and currently living in Paris and New York, Lee Mingwei creates participatory installations, where strangers explore issues of trust, intimacy, and self-awareness, and one-on-one events, in which visitors contemplate these issues with the artist through eating, sleeping, walking and conversation. Lee's projects are often open-ended scenarios for everyday interaction, and take on different forms with the involvement of participants and change during the course of an exhibition. For this talk, Lee will share five stories of connection and beauty.
