Contemporary Art Content on YouTube.. ??? Is there anything worth while??
Given all the amazing potential of YouTube.com, there remains in MAO's not sohumble opinion, VERY Slim Pickings. Most arer a total waste of time.. armature type stuff.
But maybe things are getting getting a little better?
There are sadly only... 3 YouTubers that come to mind.. which we think are well worth checking out.
1. The Madness of Art by Jim Kempner Fine Art.. Tt's totally funny and true..
Bravo Jim.. for such a wonderful effort.
We can't say enough good things about this video blog.
2. The Two Percent Tube by David Behringer. A regular New Yorkers take on Contemporary Art in NYC... It's not exactly ArtForum.. but then again, who would want to be...?
The Two Percent is a website that gives contemporary art recommendations in New York City. This week, a very special "10th EPISODE SPECIAL", "SECOND HELPING" talks about a show of abstract expressionist work at Cheim & Read running concurrently with the AbEx show at the Moma, "TRIPLE THREATS" include Tony Oursler @ Lehmann Maupin, Robert Rauschenberg @ Gagosian, and Roxy Paine @ James Cohan Gallery. If you're in New York, give the new podcast audio tour a try! Check out www.thetwopercent.com for more.
3. The Terence Koh Show... OK..well.. You my not like his artwork.. but maybe he just happens to be the most active attempt by a completely self promotionalin-the-know uber successful NYC contemporary artist.. He's not done an update for 4 months, but hopefully we will see more on YouTube from Mr. Koh.
Oh.. and how bad can this YouTube Channel be.. if this World Renown Art Blogger..ArtFagCity has told the world..that Terence Koh is the most important Contempory artist working today in NYC..
If you missed this.. you have to check this out to believe it:
ahem.. Like can you say totally out of her mind or just taken out of context?
Well.. it's a sad little list of YouTube Contemporary Art Content providers on YouTube..
Has video blogging totally died for the Contemporary Art World? What do you thinK?
BUT, If any MAO readers have a any other important ones we missed.. please send them our way!
