I haven't had that much time to watch television over the past few months but when I have - such as last night, I watched Bravo TV's new show 'Work of Art - The Next Great Artist'. Thank God for Tivo. I only recorded the first episode just to try it out and was really surprised by the show. I initially thought that it would be a platform to showcase the virulent pomposity of the art world (a slight odor was evident), but all in all it held up. I suspect that what I liked about it was the format, which was a blatant rip-off of one my favorite TV shows 'Project Runway' (so unimaginative of them but why reinvent the wheel?). It was interesting to watch the process of art executed on the fly and under the ridiculously short time constraints. I was pleased by the outcome of many of the projects and look forward to seeing what the rest of the season has to offer.
