Stage Design by Ming Cho Lee is a retrospective exhibition of celebrated and influential set designer Ming Cho Lee (b. 1930, Shanghai, China) that features original scale models, sketches and photographic reproductions. The exhibition provides an in-depth exploration of Ming Cho Lee’s creative process by displaying the preparatory materials for his set designs alongside documentation of the performances, and chronicling the evolution of his practice from his groundbreaking, abstract set designs of the 1960s and 70s to his more recent hard-edge treatments. For over fifty years, Ming Cho Lee has served on the faculty at Yale School of Drama, including as the co-chair of the design department. As a recipient of the National Medal of Arts in 2002 and the Tony award for lifetime achievement in 2013, Ming Cho Lee is one of the most acclaimed living set designers in the U.S. This exhibition is a project of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.
During the run of the exhibition, MOCA will offer a series of related events, public programs, family programs, walking tours, and gallery tours. A schedule of guided tours of Set Design by Ming Cho Lee is available on the museum website at www.mocanyc.org. Visitors can join MOCACREATE drop-in art workshops every first and third Saturday of the month, from 1–4pm.
Stage Design by Ming Cho Lee and related programs are made possible by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York Legislature. Additional support for the exhibition is provided by The Starr Foundation.Buy tickets/get more info now
