Work of Art/the next Great Artist

I blogged about my experience auditioning over a year ago for Sarah Jessica Parkers up coming reality show on Bravo.

well, finally a sneak preview of the fourteen artists chosen and some glimpses into the show:

Work of Art

Like most reality shows this one will probably be formulaic. I’ll still watch, maybe there will be some interesting banter and maybe even some interesting art~~

“Is America ready for art criticism? Because plenty of art criticism is definitely part of the mix in the Bravo cable television channel’s newest reality show, “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist,” which is slated to debut on June 9, 2010, at 11 pm (with the subsequent nine shows airing at 10 pm). Check out the show’s new website, featuring the familiar mugs of some beloved art-world insiders”.

“How is it? Fascinating, full of snappy edits, with scenes of the artists talking, working and stressing out, all in one big shared studio. The nude — arguably a key ingredient when it comes to art and popular appeal — makes an all-too-brief appearance. The competing artists, who are all identified here, are cute, though fairly conventional in their art-making; the show could have benefited from a Duchampian or two. “Work of Art” has some drama, though the participants don’t display much cut-throat art-world competitiveness, at least not in the first episode.”

on a different tangent: I’m in love with Maximus!
