Nam June Paik is known as the father of video art. We celebrate this innovative visionary, on what would have been his eighty-fifth birthday, with Barbara London, Yale University’s media arts critic and MoMA’s former associate curator in the department of media and performance art. London established MoMA’s video collection, and was the editor of Soundings: A Contemporary Score, their first major exhibition of sound art. She gives a talk entitled “What’s Technology Got to Do With It?”

Grantees: Barbara London, Paik Nam June
