vidart The Guggenheim Museum wants your video art. In a collaboration with YouTube, YouTube Play will pick 20-25 works to exhibit come October and, despite slick samples playing in their competition trailer, they’re encouraging amateurs to submit (by July 31st.)

For their “first biennial of creative video,” Guggenheim casts their net into the mass mess of banality and cultural artifact freakdom that is YouTube and they hope to catch something “incredibly creative, self-conscious” that they “haven’t seen before.” I suppose as the Guggenheim dips into the infinite virtual sea of memes, madness and stupid shit, the “self-conscious” bit means they want videos specifically intended to be video art, and not… say… Humanimal. Hopefully, they’ll scoop up some outsider art along the way anyway.
