The Future is now

19 December 2014 – 15 March 2015
Sala Gian Ferrari and Sala Carlo Scarpa

Over forty video works and media installations tell the story of the Korean New Media Art scene, from the early works by Nam June Paik, to the experiments carried out in the 1980s, by way of the digital revolution and the cultural changes triggered by the Internet and the social networks.

THE FUTURE IS NOW! presents MMCA’s New Media Art collection with the aim of reflecting on the “futures” by analyzing New Media Art ever since it was founded in 1987 to the present day.

The title of the exhibition is derived from Paik Nam June’s definition of future. Paik Nam June is an artist whose life seems to proceed along with his work.
