New York Gallery Set To Stage YouTube Exhibition

The Guggenheim Museum, New York, is set to stage an exhibition of creative art using videos uploaded onto YouTube.

The Guggenheim will show to the public 20 of the most creative videos found on the Google-owned video sharing website.

The Telegraph reports that the museum will showcase a shortlist of videos chosen from those uploaded via YouTube Play.

The videos will be selected over a period of four months by a panel of judges comprising artists, designers and filmmakers.

Once selected, the videos will be exhibited in the New York museum for four days.

The museum also plans to exhibit the videos at its sister museums in Bilbao, Berlin and Venice.

Speaking to the Guardian, Nancy Spector, chief curator at the museum, said: “YouTube is fascinating to us because it represents a demographic quite beyond our means – that's very attractive. We are always wondering about how to reach a broader demographic.”
