Work by Sieng Lee

Sieng Lee ’14, MFA, presents Siv Yiv and His Wooden Horses at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

In this exhibition, Lee has collaborated with Wa Leng Lee, a renowned shaman, and his community to create an installation that reflects a modern-day retelling of Siv Yiv, the first Hmong shaman. At the crux of his exhibition, Lee asks what people give up in order to assimilate into American culture. 

The exhibition is sponsored by the Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program (MAEP), a curatorial program of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, dedicated to exhibiting and supporting artists living and working in Minnesota.
