Shortlist Announced



The curators at the Guggenheim Museum in New York had a lot to do in recent weeks. There was an enormous response to the project YouTube Play. A Biennial of Creative Video, which the Guggenheim initiated together with the video platform YouTube. The curators had to watch around 23,000 videos from 91 countries and shortlist the most innovative ones. More than 100 videos were selected for final consideration. The works include submissions from students, video artists, photographers, composers, video game programmers, a Swedish rock band, and a South African hip-hop group. They can now be seen on the YouTube Play channel and at kiosks at the Guggenheim museums in New York City, Berlin, Bilbao, and Venice. At the Deutsche Guggenheim café, there is a special display showing the videos. "The selection is diverse in technique, subject matter, geography, and professional status, which reflects the increasing accessibility of new media technologies around the world", notes Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator of the Guggenheim Foundation. "We believe the shortlist reveals the abundance of creative energy this project evoked."

The shortlisted videos are now presented to the YouTube Play jury for consideration. The jury of eleven luminaries includes: musician and performance artist Laurie Anderson; musical artists Animal Collective; visual artists Douglas Gordon, Ryan McGinley, Marilyn Minter, and Takashi Murakami; artists and filmmakers Shirin Neshat, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and Darren Aronofsky; and graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister, with the Guggenheim’s Nancy Spector serving as jury chairperson. The jury will select their top 20 to 25 choices to be be revealed and presented at a special YouTube Play event at the Guggenheim Museum on October 21. The final videos selected by the jury will be on view to the public from October 22 through 24 in the Tower 2 Gallery of the museum. And, of course, a global audience can view the selected works on YouTube Play.
