A new video art exhibit called Ten Years at the Zoo celebrates a decade of YouTube (the first video posted to the site was co-founder Jared Kawim's trip to the zoo). Featuring video artists Andrés Galeano, Claudia Maté, Emilio Gomariz, Lorna Mills, Katie Torn, and Vince McKelvie, the exhibit will be on display at Valencia, Spain's Las Naves from December 3, 2015 through January 16, 2016.

"Our intention was to study how the changes in communication driven by the different video social media affect video art,” artist Carlos Sáez tells The Creators Project. “We were particularly interested in how [the] most popular platforms and their properties shape the artworks, creating completely new narrative styles,” he adds.
