Nam June Paik at The Bass

“Nam June Paik: The Miami Years”

The exhibition at The Bass centers the artist’s connection with the South of Florida.

The Bass Presents Mesmerizing Installations by Nam June Paik

The Bass pays homage to a groundbreaking artist in digital media with “Nam June Paik: The Miami Years.” Born in Seoul, Paik formed an intimate connection with the South Florida community throughout his prolific career. A pioneer of the “electronic superhighway,” a term coined by the artist to describe his hypnotic, digitized artworks, Paik made creations that were a precursor to our contemporary engrossment with technology and social media. An uncovering of the visionary’s life in Miami Beach weaves throughout the presentation of his cutting-edge works. The show provides detailed insights into the creation of WING and MIAMI, mesmerizing, sculptural installations that once welcomed visitors passing through Miami International Airport in the early 1990s. “Notations,” a diverse program of performances and installations by three contemporary artists in dialogue with Paik’s vision, will commence in February 2024.
