(September 9, 2021) The immersive and multisensory world of Nam June Paik – “father of video art” and futurist – awaits visitors at National Gallery Singapore this December as it stages its highly anticipated international art show this year, Nam June Paik: The Future is Now.

After touring London’s Tate Modern, San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA) and Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum, the travelling exhibition makes its last stop at the Gallery – the first and only Asian venue for audiences to catch the international art superstar’s first major retrospective in Southeast Asia.
