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.
|Concepcion was a 2020 Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Fellow and in 2019, she was a Monument Lab Fellow and recipient of the Excellence in Design Award from UC Berkeley. 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. Her work has been shown nationally, in museums, galleries and in-situ. A “self-taught” artist, Concepcion received her Master’s in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley and Bachelors degree in Urban Studies and Planning from UC San Diego.|
