Spectacle The Music Video

Spectacle: The Music Video, the first museum exhibition dedicated to music videos, opens tomorrow at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, New York. Jonathan and Meg Wells of Flux curate the exhibit, and its goal is to “explore the art, history, future, and influence of the art form.”

We were able to check out Spectacle earlier today and can report that it is awesome and absolutely something you should check out if you’re in New York.  Enjoy a sneak peak (courtesy of our Vine account) at just a few of the amazing features Spectacle has to offer, and look out for more Spectacle coverage later in the week.
