Sunday October 24
Cheyenne Concepcion (b. 1991, Los Angeles) is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer based in San Francisco. She creates work that examines the politics of place, using installation, social practice, sculpture and textile. Drawing on her interest and research in urban planning, and utilizing her training as a designer, Concepcion’s work is site-specific and is centered on cultural memory, place-based activism, migration and often has a public component. She is the co-founder and artistic director of New Monuments Taskforce, a fantastical municipal agency engaged in the dialogue, development and design of New Monuments in California.
