Bio

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, large-scale public 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 the built environment. She works between San Francisco and New York City.

Concepcion has received fellowships and residencies from Socrates Sculpture Park, Monument Lab, Institute of Contemporary Art San Francisco, Haystack School of Craft, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Goethe Institut and was a recipient of the Excellence in Design Award from UC Berkeley. She has exhibited at Patricia Sweetow Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (2024); MarinMOCA, Novato, CA (2024); Highline Nine Galleries, New York, NY (2023); Worth Ryder Gallery, Berkeley, CA (2018); Code & Canvas Gallery, San Francisco, CA (2019); and Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, New York, NY (2019). A self-taught artist, Cheyenne completed a BA in Urban Studies and Planning from UC San Diego and a Masters in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley where she was awarded a fullride GOP fellowship and the prestigious Excellence in Design Award.

View Images of the Exhibition

This ensemble exhibition is a jubilant celebration of the rich language of textile art. The twelve artists in this show maneuver fabric, fibers, and thread into objects and structures that rollick, swaddle, sag, and by any means necessary, call attention to the actuality of the material world. Whether woven, twisted, stitched, wrapped, or appliqued the works engender speculations on time, myth, and sensuality. They reframe, cancel, and blur historical implications of cloth with lavish physicality. The works’ audacious generosity of touch and gesture invite creative liberation as critical grist for the new year.

 Considering January, with Cheyenne Concepcion, Michael F. Rohde, Emily Silver, Uma Rani Iyli, Richard-Jonathan Nelson, Julia Couzens, Lia Porto, Joy Ray, Svetlana Shigroff, Aubrey Longley-Cook, Jonathan Parker, Carmen Mardonez, Helen O’Leary, Liv Aanrud +
