8-bridges

Nam June Paik

May 1–31, 2021

Gagosian is pleased to participate in a special presentation on 8-bridges in celebration of Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month. Three sculptures and one drawing by Nam June Paik are featured in anticipation of the artist’s major retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, opening May 8. In these works, Paik uses paper and TV screens interchangeably as surfaces for gestural improvisation. Dating from the last decade of the artist’s life, they embody his playful and predictive conflations of tech and mass communication with images from nature and spontaneous mark making.
