Pera Museum presented an exhibition titled This is Not a Love Song: Video Art and Pop Music Crossovers which traced the genealogy of the relations between video art and pop music.
The works in the exhibition emphasized the moments from the 1960s to today, in which video art and pop music crossed roads.

Featuring 28 prominent artists including Nam June Paik, Andy Warhol, Yayoi Kusama, Vito Acconci and John Baldessari, the exhibition explored the fields of music and video art in five parts. A diverse video screening program was presented parallel to the exhibition.

This is Not a Love Song: Video Art and Pop Music Crossovers exhibition catalogue traces the genealogy of the relations between video art and pop music from the 1960s to today in which...
Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006). It is interesting that while Warhol and Nameth were experimenting with psychedelic happenings that combined rock, film and performance, the video art pioneers Nam June Paik, Stephen Beck, Eric Siegel and Steina Vasulka were researching in a similar direction.
In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.
Between 1963 and 1966 Andy Warhol worked at making film portraits of all sorts of characters linked to New York art circles. Famous people and anonymous people were filmed by Andy Warhol’s 16 mm camera, for almost four minutes, without any instructions other than ‘to get in front of the camera’.
