Samson Young: Songs for Disaster Relief


This catalogue was published in 2017, in conjunction with Samson Young: Songs for Disaster Relief, a solo exhibition of work by Samson Young that was Hong Kong’s participation at the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. In an irreverent, inclusive way, Young addressed the peculiar resonance of 1980s charity singles in a contemporary cross-cultural context. The publication presents the work included in the exhibition along with essays addressing Young’s practice and the questions he explores in his practice.
