MY HERO recommends this book to readers of all age groups.
A Guggenheim Museum Publication Accompanying the first American retrospective of the Korean-born multi-media artist's work since 1982, this volume brings together the major artworks that define Nam June Paik's singular achievement. Through his sculptures, installations, videotapes, and projects for television, Paik has recognized and realized the potential of video to become an artistic medium. Published to accompany an exhibition opening in February at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, this book is sure to draw major media attention. Through its 300 illustrations, and an essay by Guggenheim curator John G. Hanhardt-supplemented by a selection of Paik's own writings-this volume allows art lovers to experience the numerous ways in which Paik has treated the electronic moving image and expanded the definition of sculpture and installation art over the past four decades. 300 illustrations in full color, 8 x 11"
