ASAP Symposium Keynote Lecture
Since the mid-1990s, Sarah Morris has been making abstract paintings and films to investigate what she describes as “urban, social and bureaucratic typologies”. These works, based on different cities, are derived from close inspection of architectural details combined with a critical sensitivity to the psychology of a city and its key protagonists. In this talk, Sarah Morris will provide a visual narration of her work over the years.
This talk will include an introduction by Tai Kwun Head of Art, Tobias Berger

ASAP: The Association for the Study of the Arts of the Present is an international, nonprofit association dedicated to discovering and articulating the aesthetic, cultural, ethical, and political identities of the contemporary arts.
The 2019 ASAP symposium takes place in Hong Kong, a city that embodies the program’s theme: “Old Lands, New Ground”. Hong Kong offers a unique vantage point onto the arts of the present—it experiments daily with the competing ideologies, social dynamics, contradictory spatial-temporal impulses, and economic realities of living in the postcolonial complexities of old lands, new ground.
