Spotlight: Nam June Paik
A mesmerizing riot of sights and sounds, Nam June Paik brings together more than 200 works by the visionary experimental artist who bridged art, music, performance, and technology in groundbreaking ways, and whose influence is still felt in the art, pop culture, music, and film of today.
One of the first truly global and transnational artists, Paik foresaw the importance of mass media and new technologies, coining the phrase ‘electronic superhighway’ in 1974 to predict the future of communication in an internet age. This exhibition — the artist’s first-ever West Coast retrospective — celebrates Paik’s collaborative approach that transcended genres and traditions, while also highlighting the artist’s innovative, playful, and profoundly radical work.
At this posting, the museum will remain open with limited capacity, mask mandates and social distancing. Though no shows have timed tickets, capacity is limited in smaller galleries. A line will form when galleries are full.
Please purchase your tickets immediately. In order to facilitate our visit we are planning our visit for 10 AM and will go directly to the Nam June Paik exhibition. Ticket link: https://www.sfmoma.org/exhibition/nam-june-paik-2021/
