Mel Chin: Two Me
Mel Chin’s Two Me invites the public to elevate and pose as living monuments. A noted conceptual artist, Chin's work takes many different forms to pose philosophical questions about the nature of human experience and connection. Two Me was originally commissioned for the courtyard in front of Philadelphia’s City Hall in 2017. The site-specific installation will find a temporary new home on the front terrace of the Toledo Museum of Art where it will be on display from Sept. 22 through Nov. 11, 2018.
