How To Get Your Work In The Guggenheim

Controversial? Perhaps. But I love it. From the New York Times:

The project, called YouTube Play and conceived as a biennial event, is intended to discover innovative work from unexpected sources. It is open even to entrants who don’t consider themselves artists, and actively encourages the participation of people with little or no experience in video. “People who may not have access to the art world will have a chance to have their work recognized,” said Nancy Spector, deputy director and chief curator of the Guggenheim Foundation. “We’re looking for things we haven’t seen before.”

    Very interesting partnership – glad they are recognizing the medium and the sheer creative talent that surfaces daily on YouTube.

    An interesting concept, however, I have reservations with the choice of partner. YouTube’s terms and conditions means that any content submitted to them becomes theirs. If YouTube use anyone’s creative content submitted to them for ANYTHING, the contributor/artist is not even entitled to a credit, let alone royalties or a slice of profit made by YouTube if it sells your content to any paying organization. Beware.

    This is great but there are times where even the Guggenheim fails in supporting the true artists :

    Very exciting stuff! I just shared it with my New Media Artists Network pals, who finished their 48-Hour Film Festival work this past weekend. Why not, eh?

    Thanks, Chase and Gang!

    Great to see they are aware of this mediums and are willing to recognize it in an incredibly public way. Think this gives some credibility to social media?

      social media is almost already a term of the past IMHO. sort of funny, but regular “media” sounds outdated almost…

    I do consider all the concepts you have presented for your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for beginners. May you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

    After I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any manner you’ll be able to take away me from that service? Thanks!
