KCHUNG Radio’s KCHUNG PUBLIC, comes to The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA with a dynamic model of alternative media exploration, site observation, beautiful action, and torrential community radio. In conjunction with KCHUNG Radio's year-long residency at MOCA, KCHUNG PUBLIC will be the Chinatown-based Internet radio station’s first public location, situated in a bright red, custom retrofitted, shipping container turned AM radio station.
Broadcasting live from MOCA, KCHUNG PUBLIC gives greater Los Angeles access to co-operative community radio, including musical performances, theatrical didactics, radio plays, town halls, esoteric sybilline salons, pyrite radios, turntable Einstein–Rosen bridges, interspecies talk shows, and neighborhood journalists. KCHUNG PUBLIC will burrow deep into the broader LA community, encouraging active participation in the creation of new cultural mythologies and matter.

Self-governed and operated on a shoestring budget, KCHUNG Radio was formed in 2011 as an open forum of artists, musicians, writers, and philosophers. Broadcasting live on 1630 AM from a studio-in-the-sky above a pho restaurant in Los Angeles’ Chinatown, KCHUNG Radio stands apart from other local LA-based stations in its programmatically evolving nature: currently broadcasting over 40 hours weekly of original & uncensored content. With the intention to platform traditionally underrepresented voices, there are talk shows, art reviews, interviews with psychics, scientists, plant life, and ghosts, live music, dressing room gossip, surrealist meditation lessons, advice panels, and unscripted gestures of an economic or performative nature. Functioning as a framework for the expression of local artists as individual contributors, the station is an open portal, accessible to any and all interested parties. It celebrates and promotes the efforts of the dedicated amateur while remaining an autonomous entity for collective expression.
