SF Moma’s retrospective of visionary Korean artists Nam June Paik will have as a centerpiece a restaging of 1963’s Exposition of Music—Electronic Television. Here’s more from JUXTAPOZ:
We dedicate an entire gallery to [the restaging of 1963’s Exposition of Music—Electronic Television], though not a restaging, as that would take up an incredibly large space and necessitate securing many more very fragile loans. Think of it as a cross section of the most important aspects. We will be as interactive as we can, given the constraints of the pandemic. “Foot-Switch” can fortunately be activated by foot and “Random Access” will be experienced via museum staff. In an adjacent space, we’ll show an excerpt of the historic Stockhausen happening, titled “Originale,” a wild event which originated in a collaboration with painter and salon hostess Mary Bauermesiter, later restaged in New York, again with Paik playing a seminal role as “action performer.”
