If you haven't noticed, the Guggenheim has taken over YouTube today—and vice versa—as part of their YouTube Play event. Check out the preview here, but you can catch it live tonight from 8 to 9:30 p.m., as well as tomorrow (more details below).
Join us online this Thursday as the jury’s top videos from the YouTube Play. A Biennial of Creative Video shortlist are announced via live stream from the Guggenheim. The top videos were selected from more than 23,000 global submissions. After the Guggenheim curators determined a shortlist of 125 works, a distinguished jury selected the most creative videos for presentation at the Guggenheim and to the world.
Hosted by comedian Michael Showalter, the live stream event will feature performances by Grammy Award-winning rock band OK Go; musician, producer, and video artist Kutiman; and more. Outside, the public is invited to view excerpts from the top videos projected in a spectacular display on the museum's Frank Lloyd Wright-designed facade from 6-10:30 pm on October 21 and 22.
