A Day-Long Video Tribute to Nam June Paik 

Nam June Paik

From his Fluxus-based performances and altered television sets of the early 1960s, to his video works and multi-media installations of recent decades, Paik has made an enormous contribution to the history and development of video as an art form. Exercising radical art-making strategies with irreverent humor, he reconfigures the language, content and technology of television. Merging global communications theories with an antic Pop sensibility, his works explore the juncture of art, media and popular culture.

Nam June Paik was born in 1932 in Seoul, Korea. His works have been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, including his first United States retrospective at the Everson Museum, Syracuse, in 1974, and a 1976 retrospective at the Kolnischer Kunstverein, Cologne. In 1982, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York honored him with a comprehensive retrospective, which traveled to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and in 1988 he was the subject of a retrospective at the Hayward Gallery in London. Paik has also had one-man shows at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and Holly Solomon Gallery, New York, among many others. The Worlds of Nam June Paik, a major retrospective exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, opened in 2000, and traveled to Bilbao, Spain and Seoul, South Korea. In 2006 ground was broken on the Nam June Paik Museum in South Korea.
