Paik Times Five
July 22 2012
Paik Times Five was part of the one-night exhibition Infinite Loop, organized by the New Museum and curated by Lauren Cornell, the Executive Director of Rhizome and Adjunct Curator at the New Museum. The exhibition was presented in Seoul, South Korea by Calvin Klein. Created in tribute to the legendary video art pioneer, Nam June Paik, the exhibit featured artists whose works carry on the exploration of technology and participatory art - a movement Paik helped ignite in the 1960s. Paik Times Five was one of the three specially commissioned interactive video installations premiering at the event. Rafaël Rozendaal and Scott Snibbe created the other two installations, and a curated program of single channel videos was displayed on the world’s largest LED screen (towering at twenty-three stories tall).
