Sarah Morris: Odysseus Factor
Sarah Morris’ solo exhibition entitled “Odysseus Factor” opens March 24 at Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing, China. This exhibition offers the first complete presentation of Morris’s filmic output anywhere in the world, shown here in a sequence of custom-built spaces arrayed throughout the former factory chamber of UCCA’s Great Hall and framed by a cycle of monumental new wall paintings. It is presented exactly twenty years after she shot her first film, Midtown (1998) in her home city of New York, and ten years after she filmed Beijing, with the exclusive permission of the International Olympic Committee, during the 2008 Games.
