Summary "Accompanying the first American retrospective of the Korean-born multimedia artist's work since 1982, this volume brings together the major artworks that define Paik's singular achievement. With 300 full-color and duotone illustrations, the full range of Paik's achievement is represented - from his early 1960s performance pieces through his videotapes, installations, megatrons, and celebrated "robot" portraits. The volume is the first to represent Paik's recent laser-projection installations in the rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. John G. Hanhardt provides an overview of the artist's career while focusing on his important place in the history of the moving image. The volume includes a selected exhibition and performance history as well as a selected bibliography."--BOOK JACKET
