YouTube Art

The establishment art world has finally acknowledged online video as an art form. Here are six of the 25 YouTube videos chosen from among more than 23,000 submissions from 91 countries for The Guggenheim Museum's first-ever exhibit of online video, YouTube Play: A Biennial of Creative Video. Chief Curator Nancy Spector said the videos represent "the most unique, innovative, groundbreaking video work being created and distributed online during the past two years."

The jury for the Guggenheim-YouTube collaboration included the band Animal Collective, film director Darren Aronofsky and photographer Marilyn Minter. All 25 videos were projected on the outside of the museum in Manhattan Thursday night. [OK Go, known for its inventive music videos, performed live.]

To see more of the Top 25, go here.

What do you think? Let us hear from you.

I love the birds on a wire composition, so poetic. The Guggenheim does a good job of being artistically relevant.
