Guggenheim Play selects Atlanta artist; smokes on da dro

Posted By on Sat, Oct 23, 2010 at 3:03 PM

The Guggenheim has announced their juried selections for Youtube Play: A Biennial of Creative Video, the exhibition that opened last night at the New York, Bilbao, Berlin, and Venice museums simultaneously. Among the 25 videos picked by the jury is "The Huber Experiments - Vol 1," a video produced here in Atlanta, GA by brothers Matthew and Erik Huber. Matthew is a Pratt Graduate that's lived in New York since 1992, but Erik runs The UpThink Lab, a West End based video production company, with co-founder Doug Urquhart here in Atlanta.

Another Georgia-related surprise came from Monica Cook, a Dalton, GA born artist represented by Marcia Wood Gallery and best known for her paintings. Her Guggenheim bio tells us that she's recently "taken a break from painting to explore sculpture and animation," which is apparently working out because "deuce," her terrifying and awesome stop motion animation, is some of the best work in the exhibition.

The whole exhibition is worth sitting around on your couch and taking in. "Wonderland Mafia," a mash-up of Three Six Mafia's "Smokin on da Dro" with clips from the animated Alice in Wonderland, might be the right place to start.
