Work of Art, Bravo’s new reality show debuts 11 p.m. (ET/PT) June 9 with judges, critic Jerry Saltz and dealer Leanne Greenburg Rohatyn and Bill Powers, there will be no lack of theatre. The series features 14 artists in competition for $100,000 and a solo show at The Brooklyn Museum and i understand the pilot is hilarious.
Very much in the style of Project RunwayProject Runway, the show follows a similar casting protocol resulting ina collection of trained and untrained artists, one host (Connoisseur China Chow), one mentor (auctioneer Simon de Pury), and three judges (art critic Jerry Saltz, Half Gallery owner Bill Powers and gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn) — but that the editing remains much the same.
Work of Art’s first episode introduces audiences to the artists and asks them to execute a challenge. In this case, the task was to create a portrait of one of their colleagues - very art school but not so sure anything is wrong with that.
Not sure the next best thing will be revealed but the entertainment factor and value is anticipated to be great and someone gets "their 15 minutes"
