A major retrospective of this pioneer of video.

About

Nam June Paik was a visionary artist who foresaw the importance of mass media and new technology on the visual arts. His experimental, innovative, yet playfully entertaining work continues to be a major influence on art and culture to this day.

This major retrospective will be a mesmerising riot of sounds and sights, reflecting Paik’s vision of a multidisciplinary future. It will feature work from throughout his five-decade career – from robots made from old TV screens, to his innovative video works and all-encompassing room-sized installations such as the dazzling Sistine Chapel 1993. 

The exhibition will also look at his collaborations and exchanges with avant-garde artists, musicians and choreographers, including Charlotte Moorman, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Joseph Beuys and Fluxus. It will demonstrate how Paik's global trajectory shaped a transnational network of artists that pioneered and expanded radical and cutting-edge art practice.
