The Future Was Then [PART2] Regurgitating Histories

Please join us in the SCOPE BASEL VIP Lounge to celebrate Perpetual Art Machine’s ( first show in the elite fine art landscape of Basel Switzerland and to commemorate the video art legend Nam June Paik. Paik was credited over thirty years ago with coining the phrase “The future is now”. [PAM] asks what that means today in our rapidly changing world by re-presenting an ambitious program of five specially curated video projects originally organized for Scope New York 2008 by Jarrett Gregory, Robert Adanto, Yiannis Colakides and Helene Black, Andrew Erdos in addition to the newest incarnation of the [PAM] installation and a specially curated section by [PAM] founders Chris Borkowsky, Raphaele Shirley and Lee Wells.
Special thanks to Scope Art Fairs,, and FAC.
