Simon Liu is a film artist who seeks to build a lyrical catalog of the rapidly evolving psychogeography of his place of origin in Hong Kong through alternative documentary forms, abstract diary films, multi-channel video installations, and 16mm projection performances. Liu’s work has been presented at film festivals and museums globally including the Berlinale Forum Expanded, Toronto International Film Festival: Wavelengths, International Film Festival Rotterdam: Tiger Short Competition, New York Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, New Directors/New Films with MoMA & Film at Lincoln Center, BFI London Film Festival, The Shed, M+ Museum, Tai Kwun Contemporary, Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, Museum of Contemporary Art LA, Cinéma du Réel, Punto de Vista, Viennale, Dreamlands: Expanded, and a solo-program at the Museum of Modern Art as part of their Modern Mondays series. The M+ Museum and MoMA recently acquired Liu’s Quadruple 16mm Projection Highview, along with other recent works, for their Permanent Collections. Liu is a 2019 Jerome Hill Artist Fellow, a teacher at the Cooper Union School of Art, and a member of Negativeland; an artist-run film lab in Brooklyn.
