Art on Television

We heard the rumours, we knew it was just a matter of time…before another art-themed reality tv series hit the airwaves.

This time, Sarah Jessica Parker is producing, not that that makes it seem any less like the typical, American-idol style competitive program.

13 artist contestants will compete for a gallery exhibition, a cash prize and a sponsored national tour.

Open casting calls are scheduled this month for Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and New York. According to the application instructions for potential contestants, the show’s producers are looking for “emerging or mid-career” artists who work in any number of the following fields: painting, sculpture, installation, video, photography and mixed-media.

    i think danger about this show is how they will portray the art world in television. the fact that they have sarah jessica parker as the host, i can already tell they’ll be comparing art to fashion alot, which is exactly what it was like in the “shot” and it was trash!
    but it will be an interesting show none the less.

    I don’t know if SJP can pull this off. Warhol could, with a thick blanket of ambiguous irony…
