"New Media: Who"
2004-08-15 until 2004-10-31
Neuberger Museum of Art
Purchase, NY, USA

A series of exhibitions at the Neuberger Museum of Art, New Media: Who, What, Where, When and Why, comprise five small sequential exhibitions that sample and contextualize technology-based artwork. The first, New Media: Who, on exhibition from August 15 through October 31, 2004, is a general introduction to new media artwork, providing a brief historic background in video and an example of contemporary internet-based artwork. The series is curated by Jacqueline Shilkoff, Assistant Curator, Neuberger Museum of Art.

New Media: Who includes Nam June Paik’s Zen for TV (1963, rebuilt). Nam Jun Paik, a Korean born American video artist who incorporates art and technology, has been a central figure in avant-garde art throughout his career. His innovative work in the fields of video art, performance art, installation, art, satellite transmission, painting and music composition has profoundly influenced contemporary art and has catapulted him to fame on the international art scene. Zen for TV is one of the first works to use television in art and is seminal for its manipulation of broadcast content and consideration of video as a medium.

The Pink of Stealth (2003), an installation by Mendi and Keith Obadike, is also included in the exhibition. These interdisciplinary artists employ music, live art, and conceptual Internet artworks as they conduct inquiries into the implications of social and cultural networks. They have embraced the Web as a means of celebrating and exploring their cultural identity. Amid a surround-sound composition of instruments, human voices and fox calls, The Pink of Stealth presents a hypertext narrative revealing the surface identities of two characters and an online game about fox hunting. Orchestrating environmental sound spatialization with the visual cadence of accessed text, the Obadikes are a superb example of artists using new media to meld content and composition.
