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.
