Korean-American artist Nam June Paik (1932–2006) worked in a variety of media and is considered to be the founder of video art. Soon after his move to New York City in the 1960s, Paik met the cellist Charlotte Moorman (1933-1991), a central figure of the city’s avant-garde (the "Jeanne d'Arc of new music") and the two began a collaboration that would last until her death.
In the 1960s and 1970s, Peter Moore (1932-1993) was the photographer of record for the documentation of the avant-garde art scene in downtown New York. He is recognized for his photographs of dance and theater performances as well as the ephemeral events of the Fluxus movement including performances by George Maciunas, Allan Kaprow, Nam June Paik, Joan Jonas, Charlotte Moorman among many others.
