Music Vid Show Review Out Today

You don't have to be Moses Znaimer to know the music video industry is in serious flux. At his former pop empire MuchMusic, RapCity has been usurped by Lil Wayne downloads, and Electric Circus has given way to Gossip Girl. Now, an international group of curators has produced an exhibition on the music video as changing art form. The show, The Communism of Forms, premiered in Sao Paolo a couple of years ago and is now taking place at two Toronto venues: academic site the Art Gallery of York University and corporate-sponsored-marketing zone Red Bull 381 Projects. My brief review of the exhibit appears in today's Globe. If it had been longer, I would have made sure to mention Peaches' "My Dumps" (embedded above) a hilarious DIY parody of both Fergie and Alanis Morrisette's My Humps. Beware--it's dangerous combo of catchy and gross.
