Hello again bloggers,

I am on a roll this week...this is my 2nd solo exhibition that I have curated within the space of a week! This one showcases the work of Jo Cook who is an artist from Mayne Island, Canada. Mayne Island is one of the closest islands to Vancouver, B.C.

An artist statement will be arriving shortly! For now, I have this video above and 4 exhibition screenshots for you...also, you can scroll down the blog to explore the other exhibitions that I have showcased in the recent past....

I am pleased to present a new video document and a new solo exhibition!
As is the case for all my video documents, this embedded video above does not have any audio - just sit back and enjoy the visual presentation
(in letterbox format to boot!)

Here is the description I posted on Google Video:

The Virtual Curator, Roland Quagmire III presents a new screenshot avatar exhibition in cyberspace featuring the German/Swiss media artist, Felix S. Huber. Quagmire showcases his favourite Huber screenshots in his mansion's tower. Quagmire uses the Moove Roomancer community to present Huber's work. Huber uses the Unreal Tournament Gaming engine to create his video game installations. This is not machinima.

If you cannot see the video embedded in the link above, please click on the link to Google Video - http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=-3082061031223187377&hl=en-CA

It should be noted that in my Google Video upload account, I added these credits to my credit as virtual curator:

1) Felix S. Huber (Screenshot Artist)
2) Jeremy O. Turner (Person of Interest)

...but for some reason, Google Video is not updating this to their server. Any thoughts on this? I managed to add multiple credits to the upload videos...

Regardless, please scroll down to check out Huber's exhibition screenshots, CV and other videos and postings from additional artists that I have exhibited in the past.
