PURCHASE, NY.- The Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, presents Lee Mingwei: Pantheon Project, on view through March 4, 2007. It has been said that conceptual artist Lee Mingwei’s true medium is people, for he creates installations that often depend on shared experiences and collaborations between the artist and the public. Pantheon Project will offer members of the Neuberger Museum of Art’s regional audience an opportunity to represent themselves to one another through a carefully structured, public ritual exercise orchestrated by Lee.

Inspired by traditional devotional practices, Lee will work with twenty carefully selected volunteers as they transform generic wooden boxes into secular shrines honoring the individuals and institutions that have protected and promoted them. Other visitors to the Museum will be able to engage them in dialogue by leaving their own devotional materials at the site of these displays during the run of the exhibition. Taken together, these shrines are intended to paint an unusual and telling portrait of community values.

Lee Mingwei (b. 1964, Taiwan) has had solo exhibitions at such institutions as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover; Davis Museum, Wellesley College, Wellesley; Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art; and Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia. His work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Parrish Art Museum, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He lives and works in New York and Berkeley, California.
