Prompted by Nam June Paik’s global satellite projects and the surge in remote communication due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this series of programmes explores the legacy of Nam June Paik’s texts in performances, readings and artistic interventions. Featuring more than 12 artists from Singapore, London, Berlin, New York, Mito, Seoul, and Manila, several hours of material will be screened at National Gallery Singapore.
First screened online in September 2021, these 11 video works were part of a collaborative event between SFMOMA and National Gallery Singapore that marked the symbolic passing of the baton of the exhibition between the two institutions. This anthology features the works commissioned by National Gallery Singapore.
