Cheyenne Concepcion

Cheyenne Concepcion is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer based in San Francisco. She creates work that examines the politics of place, using installation, speculation, social practice, photography and sculpture. Drawing on her interest and research in urban planning, and utilizing her training as a designer, Concepcion’s work is site-specific and focuses on land development, cultural memory, migration and often has a public component.

She is the Artistic Director of New Monuments Taskforce, a fantastical municipal agency engaged in the dialogue, development and design of New Monuments in the Bay Area. Concepcion was a 2020 Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Fellow and in 2019, she was a Monument Lab Fellow and recipient of the Excellence in Design Award from UC Berkeley. Her work has been shown in galleries and in situ. A “self-taught” artist, Concepcion received her Master’s in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley and Bachelors degree in Urban Studies and Planning from UC San Diego.
