LEXIE LIU X ADRIAN YU
FRIDAY 20 SEPTEMBER 2019
For the past three years, Future Rising has touched down in 14 cities across the globe, creating unique experiences and creations that empower and celebrate the very best new talent in music and design from around the world. Following the European edition in Spring 2019, Future Rising returns for five one-off audio-visual collaborations, touching down in Guangzhou, Bangkok, Goa, Kuala Lumpur and Brisbane to explore what’s happening in each city RIGHT HERE! RIGHT NOW!
Future Rising kicks off in Guangzhou with Chinese singer-rapper-songwriter tipped as 'the voice of the next Chinese generation', Lexie Liu, together with an interdisciplinary visual artist known for his explorations into Asian American identity through music, film and technology, Adrian Yu. Together they will collaborate on a unique audio-visual show, premiered for the first time at W Guangzhou.
Beijing-based singer-rapper-songwriter with a futuristic vision, Lexie Liu makes music oozing with cross-cultural appeal. From the last female finalist on The Rap of China in 2018, to forming her own record label and charting #13 in this year's Dazed100, it's no surprise she's been described as the voice of the next Chinese generation.
Interdisciplinary artist, director, creative director and founder of Offline Projects, a creative studio that focuses on progressive underground talent across new media, art and experimental music. Adrian Yu's work combines a love for music, film, design and technology, often exploring Asian American identity, creating installations that challenge his audience in provocative environments.
