Silver Moon or Golden Star, Which Will You Buy of Me?
Samson Young
Smart Museum of Art
In retrospect, the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair was a thermometer reading of the feverish times. Despite taking off amid the Great Depression and cross-Atlantic recession, the Fair was themed “Century of Progress,” and aimed to erect a vision of human perfection via technological prowess. Governments couldn’t afford to present pavilions, so, instead, American corporations showcased commodities, such as General Motors’ ultramodern vehicles that boasted manufactured colors brighter than the rainbow. For his debut solo exhibition in the United States, “Silver Moon or Golden Star, Which Will You Buy of Me?” at Chicago’s Smart Museum of Art, Samson Young souped up the Fair’s 20th century engine of desire into a higher-octane bacchanalia of the present’s turbocharged utopian visions.
