 Nam June Paik Tribute Screening
Last month, seventy-three year old video art pioneer Nam June Paik passed
away, leaving behind a large body of influential, risk-taking work. This
Saturday, New York's Electronic Arts Intermix will present a 12-hour
screening of the legend's videotapes, dating from 1965-2000. The program
will include better-known pieces like Paik's early 'Electronic Fables' and
his more recent 'Analogue Assemblage,' but will also include rarities like
his TV collages made in collaboration with major figures such as Joseph
Beuys and John Cage and the 80-minute '9/23/69: Experiment with David
Atwood.' Paik was among the very first to experiment with video as an art
form, in an era when 'media' was redefined to mean both 'the media' and
artistic 'medium' in the same instance. His Fluxus-based performances,
installations, and recordings often contained humorous pop elements, while
remaining very politically savvy. At their core, Paik's works were always
radically experimental, with the forw! ard-thinking artist who anticipated
the modern internet in coining the term 'electronic superhighway,'
constantly pushing boundaries of form in ways that inspired generations of
electronic artists. The EAI video retrospective is organized to begin with
Paik's more recent work and roll backwords to his earliest projects. Taking
this trip back in time will no doubt present glimpses into the future of
future of media art. - Marisa Olson
