NOW CLOSED

As we spend more and more of our time looking at screens, how is our perception of the physical world changing? Bringing together a range of video artworks and sculptures from the 1960s to the present, this exhibition asks how artists from Nam June Paik to Pierre Huyghe have responded to the digital age. Find out more from the Walker Art Center’s website.
