Twitter checks in on Bravo TV's 'Work of Art'
I've been perusing the Twitter feed on the Wednesday night debut of Bravo TV's reality-contest show, "Work of Art: The Next Great Artist." (If you follow Twitter it's at #workofart.) A selection of the chit-chat follows -- some funny, some odd.
Twitter is, of course, Snark Central, so there's a lot of that. But since my own bias inevitably colors this selection, you can read my review of the show here.
- MikePepi: First episode of Bravo's #workofart . BP oil spill no longer worst disaster of the past month
- JeffAbbott: Some complaints about #workofart are entirely legit; but some just sound like snobbery
- jen_dalton: #workofart not helping artists' image as ridiculous untalented self-important pompous clueless tricksters
- artfagcity: And so it begins. Real public discourse about art.
- carolinelau: "Art doesn’t stem from a place of competition" #WorkofArt is, like, Intervention, but with Artists. Right?http://ow.ly/1WJiR/ via @artlog
- tenthmuse: I've watched 3 minutes of this show and I already want to throw canned goods at a contestant.
- KiangaEllis: No reason 2 be humiliated. Very respectable people involved. It's just not produced 4 NY art snobs on Twitter
- maykr: fell asleep #workofart the rerun schedule is screwy, the 9am Sunday airing is the best option.
- kendraschutz: Loving #WorkofArt, the new show on @Bravotv! Makes me want to break out some canvas and start painting again!
- GardnerMichael: airing of #workofart is the same as BP's "dispersents" it sprays on the oil, thinking it will help, but pollutes more toxically
- hragv: Now I know what people who work in fashion feel like when they watch Project Runway. I'm so sorry.
