CURATOR CULTURE | CURATING NAM JUNE PAIK: THE MIAMI YEARS
Saturday, Oct 7
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Internationally recognized as the pioneer in video art, Korean-born, American artist Nam June Paik (1932–2006) is known for early experiments using the emerging technology of video, creating large-scale sculptural installations with television monitors. It is less known that Paik lived for more than a decade between New York City and Miami Beach, where he used the South Florida region as both respite and studio, making in the early 1990s two large-scale video installations for the Miami-Dade International Airport.
Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Nam June Paik: The Miami Years, this conversation between John Hanhardt, art historian, curator of film and media, and authority on Paik, and James Voorhies, Curator of The Bass, will recover and parse this little-known history on Paik—offering new insight into the acclaimed artist’s installations for the airport and his life in Miami Beach where he died in 2006.
