Lee Mingwei, the artist behind The Moving Garden on view in Flower Power, tells the stories behind six of his artworks, discussing the concepts, development, and execution. The presentation will be followed by a short conversation with Marc Mayer, the museum’s senior educator for contemporary art.

About the artist
Born in Taiwan in 1964 and currently living in Paris and New York, Lee Mingwei creates participatory installations where strangers can 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. The artist has had solo museum exhibitions internationally including at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and Whitney Museum of American Art, all in New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taiwan; Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, Australia; Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Bejing; Mori Art Museum,Tokyo; and the Auckland Art Gallery in New Zealand. His work has been featured in biennials in Venice, Lyon, Liverpool, Taipei, and Sydney; at the Whitney Biennial and Asia Pacific Triennials.
