[WEBCAST] Art Over Lunch: Artist Talk With Samson YoungVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Special public Art over Lunch in cooperation with Asia Society Hong Kong
Trained as a composer, multidisciplinary artist Samson Young incorporates elements of experimental music, sound studies, and site-specific performance into his art practice. His research based installations combine history, political discourse, and comments on pop music, with traditional music or self-programmed instruments. Hong-Kong-based artist Samson Young is the winner of the inaugural Sigg Prize (formerly the Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA)) and one of the 10 young, local artists represented with a research-driven work in the Next Act: Contemporary Art from Hong Kong exhibition at Asia Society Hong Kong.
In this Art over Lunch: Artist Talk with Samson Young, Prof. Ming Tiampo of Carleton University will discuss a number of recent works with the artist himself, for instance, The Utopia Trilogy series, the Possible Music series, The Immortals, as well as The World Falls Apart Into Facts, which is currently on view at Asia Society Hong Kong Centre.
We recommend everyone watch the video on Samson Young's third instalment in his Utopia Trilogy to prepare for this webcast.
About Art over Lunch
Art over Lunch is a monthly event series for members of Asia Society Switzerland. Each time, we visit an exhibition or a special part of a collection with artists, curators and experts for 45 minutes followed by a small lunch. The tours are designed to give members a different view on the vast troves at the museums and galleries in the city of Zurich and provide an opportunity to mingle and discuss.
Art over Lunch is made possible with the support of Bergos Berenberg.
