Southeast, Contingent

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook Chapter

Abstract

It all seems very random, a visitor remarked during the exhibit opening of "Present Passing", on a cool Hong Kong evening in March. Questions rose unspoken in response: what did they mean by random? What did they mean about meaning it so? It is impossible to tell now, nearly a year since those words were said and heard. This is for the good: in a longer slower moment of inquiry, we might recall this quotidian act of judgement to locate an exploratory point of departure. What could randomness signify for a curatorial project that aims precisely to unsettle a certain spatial fixity around contemporary art?
