You’re a Great Artist, Because Bravo Says So…

June 9, 2010

Greetings!

There’s a new show premiering on Bravo called “Work of Art,” in which a dozen or so people compete in art-related challenges designed to pit them against each other, all in hopes of a cash prize and career-launching fame. Sound familiar?

The show is structured much like other programs featured on Bravo, such as “Project Runway” and “Top Chef,” where a dozen or so contestants compete in weekly challenges, only to face a panel of so-called experts (judges) that eliminate them one by one, until one person is named “America’s Best _____,” because, you know, Bravo possesses that kind of authority across a broad range of concentrations.

Anyways, I was going to write a seething, uber sarcastic critique on “Work of Art,” until I found a terrific online article written by the uniquely in-depth, smartly funny critic Daniel Fienberg. You can read the full critique here.

Perhaps I’ll have more to say on “Work of Art” as the season progresses. Until then, happy reading!

    Ben you need to keep us updated. Fienberg’s article made me laugh.
