Samson Young: Songs for Disaster Relief World Tour
Co-presented by M+ and the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, Samson Young: Songs for Disaster Relief World Tour is the Hong Kong edition of the exhibition Songs for Disaster Relief conceived by Hong Kong-based multidisciplinary artist Samson Young for the 57th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale 2017. Featuring a series of sculptures, objects, videos, and site-specific sound installations, the exhibition offers a unique audiovisual experience that re-examines the popularity of charity singles from the 1980s. Creatively repurposing and misreading iconic songs made by popular artists for charitable causes, Young draws on seemingly unrelated past and current events to explore the social, political, and philosophical implications of a past cultural phenomenon in a cross-cultural context.

Date: March 28–31
Time: 11am–6pm
Venue: M+ Pavilion, West Kowloon Cultural District, Hong Kong
