Jury Duty at the Guggenheim
Designed to showcase emerging talent in the growing medium of online video, The Guggenheim Museum has announced an impressive jury for their prolific YouTube Play project. Lead by chairperson Nancy Spector, Guggenheim Chief Curator and Deputy Director, the list includes the likes of artists Marilyn Minter and Takashi Murakami, photographer Ryan McGingley, and the musical group Animal Collective. According to Spector the panel is looking for "work that will test, elevate, and experiment with video as it is manifest online. We are less interested in what's 'now' than in what's next." Submissions are due July 31st and the verdict will be read in September. Court is adjourned.
