"Nam June Paik: Global Visionary" opens Dec. 13 at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C. This show will tune in some of the Korean artists sound and video works. From the Smithsonian: "The artwork and ideas of the Korean-born artist Nam June Paik were a major influence on late twentieth-century art and continue to inspire a new generation of artists. "Nam June Paik: Global" Visionary offers an unprecedented view into the artist’s creative method by featuring key artworks that convey Paik’s extraordinary accomplishments as a major international artist as well as material drawn from the Nam June Paik Archive, which was acquired by the Smithsonian American Art Museum from the artist’s estate in 2009. The exhibition includes 67 artworks and more than 140 items from the Archive. Several rare artworks borrowed from private and public collections in the United States and abroad, including "TV Garden" (1974) from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, "Whitney Buddha Complex" (1982) from the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College, and Paik’s rarely seen installation "Moon Projection with E Moon and Birds" (1996), on loan from the Paik Estate, are featured. Three exceptional artworks from the museum’s collection will be included: "Zen for TV" (1963/1976), "Megatron/Matrix" (1995), and "Electronic Superhighway: Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii" (1995)."
