15 Invitations for 15 Years
A special programme series featuring exhibitions, projects, written works, performances, a blog, and set of e-dossiers marking Asia Art Archive's 15-year anniversary.
Hong Kong–based artist Samson Young moves through various locations in and around AAA by way of a roving sound station—doubling as a bookmobile and deejay booth—to generate a series of mobile radio broadcasts. His project AAAFM 993 invokes classic radio programmes with news announcements, interview segments, and commercials incorporating ambient noise sourced from AAA's audio collection, focusing on the in-between to parallel past and present.
Tune into AAAFM 993 on-site, or listen online at www.mixlr.com/samsonyoung

Live broadcast sessions (various locations near AAA):
