The Gift

The Gift draws upon the project’s broader themes of interwoven histories, performed narratives and embodiment. Exemplified by Korean American artist Nam June Paik’s first meeting with German artist Joseph Beuys and the powerful feeling of being deeply moved by each other, SAM’s exhibition focuses on the nature of relations, affinities and influences, wherein history, geography and identity are observed as manifestations of such entanglement.
