Artwork: Tang Da Wu
Gully Curtains, Tang Da Wu

While many artworks are physical objects that you can hold and easily display, there are also those that are far more ephemeral or abstract in nature. Like performance pieces or works that degrade over time. This forum looks at the issues that institutions and collectors face when researching, documenting, archiving and conserving such pieces of art. 

The talk is inspired by and runs alongside Tang Da Wu’s seminal 1980 exhibition, Earth Work, as well as a group show titled A Fact has No Appearance, the latter of which examines the impact of fresh ideas that arose in the South-East Asian art world during the turbulent ’70s.
