YouTube Play: A Biennial of Creative Video

YouTube Play. A Biennial of Creative Video is an open call developed by YouTube and the Guggenheim Museum in collaboration with HP in order to discover “what’s next” in the world of video art. There is no entry fee to submit and a jury of film, video and art professionals (namely, Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective, Darren Aronofsky, Douglas Gordon, Ryan McGinley, Marilyn Minter, Takashi Murakami, Shirin Neshat, Stefan Sagmeister, Apichatpong Weerasethakul & Nancy Spector) will decide which videos will screen at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in NYC in October.

I usually avoid using YouTube due to the negative (not to mention ignorant, racist, homophobic and misogynistic) comments left on many of the videos, therefore, I am not overly surprised to seeing similar comments left on the official trailer for this call.

In spite of this, it is nice to finally see an art institute scouring YouTube in search of artists! I encourage everyone to submit. Submissions close July 31, 2010.

  1. Sucks that I missed this. Troma’s film festival, Tromadance, is coming up in April though, and they also don’t charge an entry fee, so that’s the last refuge for us broke ass filmmakers right now. According to their website, they’re accepting submissions until Feb 18. Check out the site for more info.

  2. I am extremely inspired together with your writing abilities as
    well as with the format for your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did
    you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to peer a great blog like this one today..
