In-Person Screening: Nam June Paik: Moon Is the Oldest TV

July 13 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


Join SAAM’s celebration of artist Nam June Paik’s birthday with a screening of the 2023 documentary, Nam June Paik: Moon Is the Oldest TV (107 min) that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. Paik, known as the “father of video art,” transformed twentieth-century art with his innovative media-based artwork. SAAM is recognized internationally as the center for the the study of Paik’s work with several major artworks in the collection and important archival holdings. The film explores Paik’s career and influence through his writings, archival footage, and clips of his work. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Executive Producer David Koh, Director Amanda Kim, and SAAM’s Curator of Time-Based Media, Saisha Grayson.
