The Asia Society Museum in New York currently presents the first major institutional exhibition of Koren American video artist Nam June Paik in New York in more than a decade. The exhibition, entitled Becoming Robot, explores the artist’s visionary use of new technologies, and the impact his work had on the new media art. Nam June Paik: Becoming Robot includes a number of rarely shown works as well as some works never before exhibited in the United States. The show focuses on three areas of Nam June Paik’s career: Paik’s artistic and working methods with an emphasis on his process; his philosophy toward technology, especially the relationship of technology with the body; and the intersection of technology and culture. The exhibition runs until January 4, 2015.
Nam June Paik: Becoming Robot / Asia Society Museum, New York. November 17, 2014.
