In a clear demonstration of a sea change in the art elite's attitude towards the somewhat haphazard creative output of the internet the Guggenheim has teamed up with YouTube to bring the world the inaugural YouTube Play Biennial.
Seeking to identify and present a long list of 200 videos from the site that are "innovative, original and surprising regardless of genre, technique or budget" the Guggenheim and a celebrity judging panel will select the cream of the crop to be presented at the Solomon R. Guggenheim museum in New York with simultaneous presentations in Bilbao, Berlin and Venice.
Judging submissions will be Takashi Murakami, Ryan McGinley, Douglas Gordon, Marilyn Minter and Shirin Neshat; Stefan Sagmeister, Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective and the filmmakers Darren Aronofsky and Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
To be considered videos must be non-commercial in nature, no longer than 10 minutes in length and have been released to the public within the last two years (full terms are available here).
Submissions close July 31, 2010 so if you've got work that you want to enter get to http://www.youtube.com/play now!
