Youtube Play Biennial: Project with Guggenheim Museum
'Youtube Play' Replaces Youtube Logo
Sharp-eyed video junkies will have noticed that the Youtube logo has been replaced with 'Youtube Play'. While some may see a partnership between the iconic Guggenheim Museum and Youtube (home of "dumbass redneck truck surfing") as a step down for the museum, the Guggenheim sees this as a way to bring a whole new audience through its doors.
What Is Youtube Play?
Youtube Play is a project that Youtube is doing with the Guggenheim Museum. Basically, you can submit a video to be shown at the Guggenheim museums in New York, Berlin, Bilbao, and Venice. Before you point your camera down your pants, though, keep in mind that all submissions will be judged by a panel of experts. The panel includes Laurie Anderson and Darren Aronofsky, who know a thing or two about experimental video.
Submission Criteria for Youtube Play Biennial:
- Video must be creative (animation, computer graphics, or live action.
- Video must be less than 10 minutes long (despite the new 15-minute limit).
- Video must be non-commercial. Sorry, "press release" folks.
- Video must be less than two years old. but it's preferred that this be your work's world premiere.
- Gotta be 18 or up.
- Submission deadline is July 31, so you'd best get cracking.
