Internationally recognized as the "father of video art," Korean-born artist Nam June Paik (1932--2006) transformed twentieth-century art. His innovative media-based artwork was grounded in avant-garde music and performance art, which he used to expand video and television as artistic expressions. Nam June Piak: Global Visionary offers a view into the artist's creative method by featuing key artworks that convey Paik's extraordinary accomplishments as well as selections from the Nam June Paik Archive.
