Cheyenne Concepcion is a Filipino-American artist and designer whose work explores how architecture, politics, history and aesthetics shape place across a wide range of media including sculpture, design, social practice and public art. She creates craft-inspired sculptures, installations and functional objects that confront hidden histories within the American landscape. By shining a light on the stories of the people and places that have been overlooked, Concepcion uses her work to engage ideas of cultural memory, migration and activism. She works between New York and San Francisco.

Concepcion has received fellowships and residencies from Socrates Sculpture Park, Monument Lab, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Goethe Institut and was a recipient of the Excellence in Design Award from UC Berkeley.

In Spring 2022, Concepcion debuted the Reclaim Collection, her first collection of collectible design through WantedDesign’s LaunchPad program highlighting emerging design studios in North America.
