His innovative, media-based artwork was grounded in the practices of avant-garde music and performance art, which he used to expand video and television as artistic expressions in contemporary visual culture. Nam June Paik: Global Visionary features key artworks from the Smithsonian American Art Museum's collection as well as loans from Museum Moderner Kunst in Vienna, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College and the recently acquired Nam June Paik Estate Archive. A wide selection of materials including televisions, radios, antiques, toys, cameras, announcements for exhibitions and performances, and correspondence give an unprecedented view into Paik's artworks and working practice, revealing the influences of Asian and Western philosophy as well as developments in technology and science."--Publisher's website.
