The title of the exhibition, Electronic Superhighway, comes from a term invented in 1974 by South Korean videoart artist Nam June Paik who realized the potential of global connections through technology. Ordered in reverse chronological order, Electronic Superhighway begins with works created at the turn of the millennium and ends with Experiments in Art and Technology (EAT), a landmark event of 1966. Spanning a period of 50 years, from 2016 to 1966, moments arise in the history of art and the Internet as the exhibition travels backwards.
