The Tate Modern is putting on a major retrospective of the work of Nam June Paik, showcasing his pioneering use of video over his fifty-year career.

Nam June Paik was one of the first to foresee the importance of mass media and how its technologies could be used to create exciting and innovative new works. His most experimental works continue to have an influence even to this day.

The exhibition promises to be a riot of sounds and sights, featuring everything from robots made out of old TV screens, to Sistine Chapel 1993 -- a dazzling room-sized installation that shines media images onto the ceiling.

The exhibition will also feature some of his collaborations with avant-garde artists and musicians like Charlotte Moorman, John Cage, Merce Cunningham and Fluxus.
