Hey, Art Museum, Give Me iPod Eye Candy!

Wired, Apr. 24, 2007

Commentary on the lack of video on the websites of contemporary art institutions such as the Guggenheim, MoMA, and PS1. Momus discusses how blog-formatted webzines Pinmag and Flasher, the internet TV network Vernissage TV, and YouTube are making video about the art world available to the public online. Despite the slow pace at which many museums are catching up with blogging and the internet-video revolution, notable progress is being made by New York's New Museum, L.A. MoCA (which now has an account with Vimeo), and London's Tate.
