Art & the electronic Superhighway 2016-1966

Format

 

 

The Electronic Superhighway is a back to the future, historical exhibition, displaying over 100 artworks and the impact of computer technologies and the Internet. South Korean Artist Nam June Paik originally coined the term Electronic Superhighway. He forecasted the idea of a global connection through the use of technologies back in 1974. The Exhibition starts with the technologies that we are familiar with in 2016 and takes this technical dreamscape back all the way to 1966 and finishes with “Experiments in Art & Technology” (E.A.T). EAT was an iconic art movement that took place in 1966.
