Nam June Paik (Retrospective)
SFMOMA San Francisco Museum of Modern Art – May 08 to October 03, 2021 San Francisco (United States)
A fascinating riot of sights and sounds. Nam June Paik brings together more than 200 works by the visionary experimental artist who made the connection between art. The music. Performance and technology in a revolutionary way. This influence is still felt in art, pop culture and music.
One of the first truly global and transnational artists. Paik foresaw the importance of mass media and new technologies. He coined the term “electronic highway” in 1974 to predict the future of communication in the Internet age. This exhibition, the artist’s first-ever retrospective on the West Coast, celebrates Paik’s collaborative approach that transcends genres and traditions. While highlighting the innovative, playful and deeply radical work of the artist.
