The YouTube Thing - Brighton

This is a show curated by friends Nadege and Orion from collective art group ProtoPLAY. I got a sneak preview of one of the videos - this is really good weird shit. YouTube is like a bigger version of the access channel gone global, possibly interesting, and usually wrong. Those of you who are from the States know what I mean when I talk about the access channel - thank god for the freaks. So if you're around on Tuesday 29th April, go check it out. It's free. And it's art! VIDEOCLUB in collaboration with protoPLAY presents : The YouTube Thing 29 April 08 (Tuesday) - 7.30pm - Free entry - doors open at 6.30pm

1977

The YouTube Thing is a curated screening of videos from YouTube, selected in collaboration with Nadege Derderian and Orion Maxted from protoPLAY. A screening of touching, angering, curious, visceral and ever-so voyeuristic pieces, taken from the mass contemporary ‘archive’ of YouTube.

There will be an opportunity for questions with the curators, and a special piece of writing about The YouTube Thing will be available.

Lighthouse, 28 Kensington Street, Brighton BN1 4AJ www.lighthouse.co.uk

Cocktail happy hour at Lighthouse from 6.30pm www.videoclub.org.uk ** Our collaboration with Northwest Film Forum (NWFF) in Seattle is going ahead.
