Hyundai Partnership Facilitates New Tate Modern Exhibit of Nam June Paik

Hyundai’s promotion of Korean art at Tate Modern began this year with the multimedia sculptures of the “father of video art.” Nam June Paik, who lived to the age of 73 in 2006, saw many of his predictions come true, including computer users posting to a “Video Common Market”

The collaboration, known as the “Hyundai Commission,” provides funding to feature annual installations by contemporary artists until 2025. This pact is the biggest since Tate Modern opened in 2000, and the first installation is up and running.
