A while ago, Artillery, one of our favorite art magazines, sent out an open call contest requesting video shorts that emphatically framed behavior outside the norm. The judges, Tulsa Kinney (Editor of Artillery), Steve Cioffi (videographer), and Paige Wery (Publisher of Artillery) dug through the submissions and selected the best of the best. The finalists include shorts that cover celebrity martyrs, social outliers, sexual taboo detonation experts, and obsessed rocketeers. The final line-up includes artists and filmmakers from Los Angeles and New York City. Now it’s up to you to pick the winner. We’ll be screening the nominees tomorrow at 7pm in the Purple Lounge at The Standard, Hollywood and voting will occur immediately following the viewing.
Featured Videos Include:
Zig Gron: ApocoLips, LA filmaker
McLean Fahnestock: Grand Finale, LA artist
Readymade 777: It’s My Desire, LA filmmaker
Jules Marquis: Just You and Me, NYC art collaborative
Anne Sherwood Pundyk: My Atlas: Lindsay/A Report to an Academy, NYC artist
