The Shortest Video Art Ever Sold


A project by Marina Galperina and Kyle Chayka - organized by Postmasters


The Shortest Video Art Ever Sold is a site-specific physical curatorial project, offering an exclusive "screening" of new art by top net artists in the newest social media format, Vine - a video all of six seconds long. SVAES is presented in a purposely analog/DIY format, a Fair Shopping Network "television program"  that will grant the fair goers opportunity to immediately purchase the Vine Edition of 1 and, for an extra fee, have the artist tweet the new artistic acquisition at the patron, so they can have their collecting acknowledged publicly. ! SVAES subverts the insular art market, the Vine brand, the "like economy" of the social media and video art as property/commodity.


Marina Galperina is the Art Editor of ANIMALNewYork, and a Brooklyn-based freelance journalist, specializing in Russian internet phenomena, conceptual vandalism and net art. 

Kyle Chayka is senior editor at renowned art blog Hyperallergic.com and a freelance culture and technology writer based in Brooklyn. He is a participant of and spectator on various events and exhibitions in New York and elsewhere.
