We Are All Mountaineers

We Are All Mountaineers

Comprised of intricately hand cut Chinese rice paper, these works are a thematic follow up to Lee’s 2017 exhibition The Sea Will Come to Kiss Me, a site-specific installation engendered in response to the contentious rhetoric of the 2016 presidential election which mirrored Lee’s unease as an immigrant, woman, and person of color.

The exhibition title references #WeAreAllImmigrants and it reflects upon the uphill battle facing immigrants under the current administration's recent policy shifts. The works in the exhibition explore facets of migration: diaspora, lineage, displacement and the rebuilding of home, and familial separation. Drawing on immigrants’ personal experiences, the show affirms our shared desire for a sense of community, societal acceptance, and belonging.
