Creative Time & The Standard Announce The StandART Video Channel
NEW YORK, NY.- We don't normally watch television because we end up watching absolutely NOTHING for hours on end. We know you know what we're talking about. We do own a flat screen TV, but nothing plays on it cuz we don't have cable, but we digress, yet again....

So whenever we're feeling the need to catch a bit of The History Channel or reruns of The Golden Girls on Lifetime Television, we check into one of The Standards and just lay in bed all weekend with the remote in one hand and a dirty martini in the other. But now, that whole process is going to get just a little bit better!

Starting March 5th, The Standard Hotels along with Creative Time present an in-room video art exhibit featuring the work of 10 renowned international video artists. The StandART Channel debuts at The Standard, New York this Friday and continues doling out its viewing pleasures at the three other properties in Los Angeles and Miami.

The StandART channel is the realization of both organization's ongoing commitment to presenting innovative art in the public realm. (Wait! We did we just say that? We sound like a press release waiting to happen.) Each video, handpicked for the installation, is a visual orgasm culminating in the pure emotion of what it's like to live in the city.

Marilyn Minter's Green Pink Caviar focuses on the representations and ramifications of glamour while Marco Brambilla never ceases to amaze us with his internationally acclaimed work in video. Our most favorite is by Lee Walton entitled F'Book, What My Friends Are Doing On Facebook. This piece uses Facebook status updates of Walton's friends as scripts for video re-enactments depicting scenarios that are taken to absurdly literal extremes.

There are six more videos that will tantalize and titillate, but you're going to have to check in to the one of The Standards to check them out. Don't ask us to send you bootleg versions. That's one thing we just can't make happen.
