Outernet Arts is pleased to announce a special project in collaboration with Sarah Morris, premiering in 2021.
A projection of the epic video art series by the abstract painter and filmmaker will be screened inside the Now Building as a multi-channel loop. These dynamic portraits depict the effects of globalisation on major cities such as New York, Beijing, Paris, Abu Dhabi, and Rio de Janeiro.
About Sarah Morris
Sarah Morris is a contemporary American painter. Influenced by Pop, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, and architecture, her paintings feature hard-edge geometric abstraction that explores the physicality and psychology of cities.
Often working in large-scale, Morris’ distinctive aesthetic is characterized by sharp white outlines filled with muted pastel tones. In tandem with her two-dimensional works, Morris is also an accomplished filmmaker, creating politically charged films that when coupled with her paintings offer, in her words, “two sides of the same coin.”
Born in Sevenoaks, England on June 20, 1967, she went on to study at Cambridge and Brown Universities before attending the Whitney Independent Study Program. Her work has gained widespread critical acclaim, with Morris receiving a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant in 2001 and a fellowship at the American Academy in Berlin in 1999. She has held solo exhibitions at such institutions as the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2005, and the Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna in 2009. Morris lives and works in New York City.
