Artist Jean Shin is transforming one of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s first-floor gallery spaces with a site-specific installation in which she will create a textile-based “portrait” of the Museum’s staff members, both those visible and invisible to the general public, who enable a museum to function.

The installation, done in her signature artistic practice of massive scale and evocative use of found items, will consist of donated garments intended to represent the collective work of the people within the institution. Separating the fabric from its seams, Shin will shape these elements into a large-scale wall mural with immersive hanging elements that will activate the gallery walls and ceiling.

"The Museum Body" is a reiteration and expansion of Cut Outs and Suspended Seams (2004), a project presented by Shin 20 years ago at the Museum of Modern Art QNS.
