About the speaker
Eelyn Lee is an award-winning artist and filmmaker who has exhibited across UK including Barbican, Tate Modern, National Portrait Gallery and Whitechapel Gallery as well as internationally in Paris, Berlin, Bogotá and Toronto.
Eelyn’s socially engaged practice combines collective research, devised theatre, screen writing and filmmaking to create frameworks for ensembles of collaborators to work together. Her Chinese/English heritage motivates her interest in race, identity and othering’. In 2016 she co-founded Social Art Network, a UK based community of artists committed to building agency in the field of art and social practice.
‘Eelyn’s multidisciplinary work is a flexible exploration of race, identity and ‘othering’. Making use of the power of collective research, she challenges commonly accepted narratives of past, present and future. The previously marginalised and the 'othered’ occupy their rightful place in the foreground and co-create a future where they can thrive.‘ – Our Favourite Places
