Originally broadcast to a live audience over four 24-hour episodes at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris in 2016, Anne-James Chaton’s work RADIO will feature at MPavilion for a special broadcast during Anne-James’s MProjects residency.

RADIO combines contemporary poetry on an array of topics—horoscopes, to gaming, to garden chronicles, to burn-out, and more—with the works Poetry in the cityWhat Kind of Poet Are You? and Pop Poetry, a work featuring none other than Iggy Pop reciting, and talking about, poetry.
