Nam June Paik

Video Gallery – admission free subject to availability of places

A series of events within the ambit of the video art programme

The artapes series of screenings presents three Videocittà events, the project launched by ANICA and associated with the theme of film and the audio-visual idiom in Rome, a cultural programme of over 60 events aiming at adding a new chapter to the history of what has always been a significant centre of the seventh art. An innovative way of looking at film and the audio-visual genres, allowing them to establish dialogues with new creative, artistic and technological forms of expression and introducing Rome and Italy to a complex and extremely competitive international scene.

The first appointment is a tribute to the artist of Korean origins, Nam June Paik, one of the most influential videomakers, with two of his most celebrated works. His video sculptures, installations and performances comprised on the most influential bodies of work in electronic media art. Uniting theories of global communication with an irreverent Fluxus sensibility, his work in music, performance and videos explored the juncture of art, technology and popular culture.
