Animal Collective, Darren Aronofsky Will Judge the Guggenheim’s YouTube Contest


This morning the Guggenheim announced the jury for YouTube Play, an open call for YouTube clips to be showcased in a fall exhibition. And it includes: Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective, Darren Aronofsky, Douglas Gordon, Ryan McGinley, Marilyn Minter, Takashi Murakami, Shirin Neshat, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Stefan Sagmeister, and Guggenheim chief curator Nancy Spector. Jerry Saltz already approves of YouTube in the Guggenheim; does the pedigree of the judges lend the contest some more credibility? [Official site]
