Join us for a multifaceted exploration of Nam June Paik’s collaborative approach to and influences on art-making. Thursday’s program features a panel discussion with Joan Rothfuss, Ed Halter, and SFMOMA’s own Rudolf Frieling, as well as a special screening of Charlotte Moorman and Paik performing John Cage’s 26’1.1499” For A String Player. Friday’s screenings continue to look at Paik and his extended circle of artistic collaborators. Saturday concludes this suite of programs with a set of gallery talks on Paik’s video sculptures, altered televisions, and an array of rarely exhibited drawings and ephemera on view in the exhibition Nam June Paik: In Character.
