News & Updates, May 2021
So, last week marked exactly 10 years since I Am Your Grandma was released and went on to become an unlikely sensation in both art and pop culture, racking up millions of views, hundreds of covers and remakes, screening at film festivals like SXSW, exhibiting in museums, being on weird tv shows that have celebrities ( not really sure who they are tbh) reacting to them, and landing on the cover of Art Papers Magazine.
A lot has changed in terms of online video and art over the past ten years, yet somehow, I Am Your Grandma persists to this day as a popular TikTok song, where it has been rediscovered by a generation of people too young to remember when it was first released, and remade thousands of times.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of this work that exists somewhere between internet oddity, pop music video, sincere family heirloom, and serious-minded art, tomorrow, I'm releasing a new video called "Grandma is Watching,"
The mayor of Coral Gables proclaimed May 12th as I AM YOUR GRANDMA DAY. lol
