Sandra Eula Lee is a Korean-American artist, based between New York and Beijing.

She is the recipient of awards including an Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Studio Fellowship, an Asian Cultural Council Fellowship, a Manhattan Community Art Fund Grant from the LMCC, and residency fellowships from the Seoul Museum of Art, and the National Museum of Contemporary Art, South Korea, among others. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including venues in New York, Boston, Seoul, Berlin, Milan, Rome, Mumbai, Xiamen, and upcoming in Beijing. Her work has been written about in publications including The New York Times, Time Out New York, Artnet Magazine, The Boston Globe, Boston Phoenix, Harper's Bazaar, Wolgan Misul, Korea Times, World Journal, and (Rotterdam-based).

Lee is Course Director of Critical Art & Design, a Masters preparation course that is a collaboration with the University of the Arts London. Recent posts include Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology (BIFT).


I create installations, including objects incorporating elements of sculpture, photography, and drawing. Recent work explores links between historic landscape and the activity of garden making, and the significance of creating individual "place" within changing environments. Research was shaped by travels, residency work, and experiences living in the U.S., South Korea and China.
