Samson Young: Silver Moon or Golden Star, Which Will You Buy of Me?

Venue

Loosely taking the idealism displayed at the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago as a point of departure, Samson Young premieres a trilogy of video installations that explore concepts of social progress and utopia. Through Young’s careful processing and manipulations, the multimedia exhibition considers how various sites—the home, the car and the shopping mall—are embedded with themes of progress and utopia through past and present social imaginaries.
