Join us in celebrating the launch of a new broadcast commission – Amplifying Archives, by artists Cường Minh Bá Phạm, Trà My Hickin, Koa Phạm, Stefan Nielsen, Nic Anette Miller, and Thierry Phung. 

Hear four new auditory essays that explore the role of sound in archives and shared heritage, accompanied with visual projection. The project invites you to listen to what lies just out of reach of hearing, what has been systematically unheard, and what lies waiting in silence. These works will expand upon the role of sound in connecting to the past in transnational-Vietnamese contexts. 

At 3 pm there will be a one-off, delineated/dearranged live presentation of the component parts of the broadcast commissions, by Cường Minh Bá Phạm, Trà My Hickin, and Thierry Phung

The Amplifying Archives commissions will then be available for listening in the gallery as well as accessible to online listeners via LUX website.

Commissioned by An Việt Archives, supported by the British Council as part of the UK/Vietnam Season 2023 and Hackney Archives, LUX, Nhà Sàn Collective, The Outpost, Á Space and the University of Westminster.
