Morgan Wong’s artistic practice unfolds his contemplation on time. Transcending a personal perceptual approach, his concerns are expanded to aspects like social concern or scientific notions in temporality. Morgan participated in Rooftop Institute’s programme as an artist in Hok Hok Zaap (HHZ): 15 Initiatives of Engaged Learning in Art and as an artist researcher in RT5. His selected solo exhibitions include: Time Isn’t Our Border (Goethe Institute Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 2019), Our Feet Are Always Younger than Our Heads (Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre, 2018), The Dashes; The Laughter; The Reservoirs (Asia Art Center Taipei II, Taipei, 2016), Filing Down a Steel Bar Until a Needle is Made (Tintype Gallery, London, 2013). Wong’s work has also been shown at international institutions including, Media Museum ZKM (Karlsruhe), Tate Modern (London), Seoul Museum of Art (Seoul), ArtScience Museum (Singapore) and Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts (Taipei). In 2019, Morgan Wong was awarded the Asian Cultural Council New York Fellowship. Apart from receiving multiple grants from HKADC and HAB for his artwork creation and cultural exchange, in 2021, Wong received The 15th Hong Kong Arts Development Awards – Award for Young Artist (Media Arts).
