Art Signs Gallery Talk – April 11

April 8, 2013 in Advocacy & Access, Community Events

The Smithsonian American Art Museum will have its next session of Art Signs gallery talks in ASL on Thursday, April 11 at 5:30pm

Art Signs guide Tracey Salaway will discuss work and ideas of the Korean-born artist Nam June Paik, an artist who was a major influence on late twentieth-century art and who continues to inspire a new generation of artists.  Sometimes called “the father of video art,” Paik created vibrant installations using televisions, video footage and manipulated moving images that both challenge and amuse viewers.
