PAIK Nam June
(b. 1932 d. 2006, Korea)
Paik used the image of the television as an expressive medium to provide a wider range of visual pleasure. He was an integral member of the FLUXUS movement alongside George Maciunas and John Cage, seeking new modes of artistic expression and cultural exchange through music, performance and media works. His work during the end of the 20th century was considered to be experimental and innovative, and continues to be a mass influence on art and culture today. Paik had a five-decade career with artwork ranging from TV robots, videography, and room-sized installations. He first used the term “the electronic superhighway”, a world where humans connect through radio waves and television broadcasts - in many ways, predicting the internet.

Paik was born in 1932 in Korea and died in 2006. His work has been featured in international solo and group exhibitions since the late 1950s. Paik’s work has been included in two major retrospectives, and has been featured in major international art exhibitions including Documenta, the Venice Biennale and the Whitney Biennial. The Paik Nam June Art Center was officially opened in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do, Korea in October 2008.
