“Art and TV have always been bad bedfellows; They never get one another.” So says Jerry Saltz in his recap of the season finale of the Bravo reality show Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. The show’s format is a lot like Project Runway or Top Chef, following 14 contestant throughout a series of challenges (i.e. art inspired by nature, shocking art, art inspired by childhood) for the grand prize of $100,000 and a show at The Brooklyn Museum of Art. Saltz, art critic for New York Magazine, is a judge, along with Bill Powers, co-owner of Half Gallery, gallerist and consultant Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, host China Chow and mentor Simon de Pury, who may have one-upped Tim Gunn in the funny voice category.
