SThThe Push Pops are happy to announce that the video "LAND ON THE MOON" has been selected to be screened in SanctionedArrayREENING AT 30 ft x 16.5 ftVideos screened at BIG SCREEN PROJECT on October 25th 2010, 5:00 - 9:00 P
SanctionedArray is an online database of video art conceived in response to the restrictions placed on artist submissions to The Guggenheim Museum and YouTube's video biennial, Play. Artist submissions to Play are limited by OFAC sanctions—citizens or residents of Belarus, Cote d'Ivoire, Congo, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Myanmar/Burma, and Zimbabwe are not eligible to submit their work. We maintain that the application of OFAC sanctions to virtual transmissions of video art perpetuates the conditions that led to the imposition of these sanctions; those who wish to protest the continuity of such restrictions — artists of any origin, including those from the sanctioned countries — are invited to submit their work to SanctionedArray.
We hope to showcase the most notable and varied video works from creators anywhere. Submission of virtual entries to SanctionedArray follow online video formats proposed by YouTube and the Guggenheim, with the exception of item 1.d. under Eligibility (https://sites.google.com/site/ytplayterms/all). One hundred videos will be selected for the online database. A large number of invited art professionals shall serve as jurors in SanctionedArray by rating the online entries in a process and open source code created and generously provided to us by apexart. The selection criteria are not predetermined in the call for submissions, and will be calibrated by jurors in the process of selection.
SanctionedArray selected video entries shall also be launched on October 25th, 2010 at The Big Screen Project. This event shall coincide with the Play biennial at the Guggenheim, providing representation of video works considered not eligible by origin as determined by YouTube and the Guggenheim, and challenging a status quo as proposed by Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Guggenheim Museum.REENING AT 30 ft x 16.5 ft:ideos screened at BIG SCREEN PROJECT on October 25th 2010, 5:00 - 9:00 PM,
