An Ecology of Art Space in the East Asian City

Date: 27 October 2022 (Thursday)
Time: 5pm
Registration Link: https://bit.ly/22SoFTRenwick

This talk will explore the relationship between art and architecture in the East Asian City from an academic and practitioner’s perspective. Each speaker will unpack what an art ecology means to their work. In addition to examining how these ecologies have transformed over time and are defined by place, we will discuss how they are informed by global and regional movements in art, architecture, and cities shaping.

Speakers: Ms. Elizabeth Briel, Dr. Ying Zhou

Elizabeth Briel’s prints, paintings, and installations begin with materials imbued with meaning—papers devastated by a typhoon or made of military uniforms, paints of bone and lead—and frequently incorporate architectural elements. She received a BFA in Painting from the University of Minnesota, and has been awarded fellowships or residencies from China Exploration and Research Society (Shangri-la), Universiti Sains Malaysia (Penang), and Grabart (Barcelona).

Ying Zhou’s expertise is at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and visual art. Her current research investigates the arts ecologies manifested by Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Singapore’s art spaces. She also researches on and writes about heritage conservation, architectural reuse, gentrification, and creative cities. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Hong Kong.

Moderator: Dr. Trude Renwick

Trude Renwick is a Fellow in the Society of Fellows in the Humanities at the University of Hong Kong. She specializes in the Architectural and Urban History of Thailand and Southeast Asia and is currently completing her monograph on the relationship between commercial and spiritual space in Bangkok.
