Fuckers said I wasn't innovative enough yeah well fuck you Bravo and Magic Elves Entertainment I DIDN'T EVEN WANT TO BE ON IT icon_cry.gif

    Maybe you should have demanded to see Sarah Jessica Parker, the show's producer, and then wowed her with Sex in the City knowledge. That would have been a "To the front of the line" conversation for ya. icon_wink.gif

    I just saw that one episode where she fell on the runway and got back up. I think she was wearing something blue...
    ...oh god my total disinterested lack of SATC knowledge made me sound totally straight. I need to immerse myself in ponies and unicorns, stat.

    Awww, you would have been one hot eye candy to watch on Bravo. Ain't one single attractive guy on there. By the way, didn't know you were an artist. Do you have a portfolio/website?

    By the way Gigolo, I agree, the ADD guy is going to win. I like his art although I think his book cover was too abstract for publishing but still, I liked it enough to hang on a wall. I did NOT get the winner's cover of The Time Machine. I didn't care for it especially the hand drawn typography! wth?!

    The girl who did the flowery cover of The Time Machine. I thought it did NOT fit with the theme (that's a serious WTF!!!!) but I liked the idea enough to do something for my niece's room!

    I have to say that some of these people on the show are pretty terrible people. So many pretensions and complexes, I'm just waiting to hear a fake accent. That said, I think there is a bit of value in maybe shining a little light on to the 'art world'. Take some of the mystery out of it, etc.

    Been watching this, started as a, hmmm we'll see with the first one got sucked in right away. I think Miles or Abdi will win, they're both really good and have pretty strong concepts behind their work, was rooting for Eric the untrained as a wild card until he got bitter and bitchy,

    Fine artists created “commercials”, product placement, branding long before these things had names in any ancient language.

    Got any coins or paper money? Artists put the face of Alexander the Great on coins, giving him branding and helping unify his vast empire. Artists created scenes of their governments conquering heroes, promoting them and making them immortal, long before anyone actually ran for office. And no company or person has ever come close to the way that the Catholic Church and Holy Roman Empire used art for branding, advertising, PR, and yes, even product placement. You can easily see this in most of the world’s greatest art museums and sites. Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Donatello, Matisse, etc., anyone?

    The critics—the writers questioning the Audi product placement are all earning a living from media that is supported by advertising, whether a blog with Google Ads or print ads like those in the LA Times.

    Isn’t art always, in some way also a kind of media? What makes art so holy that artists or art distribution streams, such as a TV show cannot benefit from sponsorship? [Note: for Holy Art see a previous paragraph re the Catholic Church.]

    The artist-contestants have been criticized for not openly questioning or commenting upon the “Audi commercial” inside the show, as apparently this should be understood as shocking.

    What shocked me was that not a single artist grabbed up any – not a darn shred—of literature from the Audi showroom to either use in collages, as models for their art piece, or even as surfaces to paint upon. Not one artist used an Audi car image, exterior or interior —a definitely Audi image—in their work. To be fair, one artist did use the product name and logo in a humorous Word Art piece. Neither the winner nor runner up included any reference to Audi in their works.

    If there is now a taboo about making art with product images, do we need to toss out Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup cans or Brillo boxes? If instead of an Audi ride and showroom, the same artist-contestants were taken to a supermarket, might we have seen product images in the contestants’ art pieces?

    So far, none of the critics focused on the fact that the real art world cast of the show, Simon de Pury, Bill Powers, Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, Jerry Saltz, and guest judge Richard Phillips never commented negatively or questioned Audi’s “commercial” within the show. They are art world savvy. They know that automobile manufacturers, banks, wines and liquors, retailers, media, etc., sponsor art shows and events. Sponsor = patron = advertising usually — and a wise museum director, curator, artist and critic knows this and is grateful for the arts funding.

    As an artist, I kind of think that Audi can be seen as a patron to the show and also the artist-contestants, who are delighted with the free flow of art supplies and studio space that they are enjoying. I say bring on the sponsors and, (pun intended) Bravo to companies that helps foster interest in Contemporary Art and artists!

    I lobe this show... and they really push the envelope on the art too. I kind of have a crush on Miles (the tortured artist, haha), and when he did the Mickey Mouse with his sweet cum shot on there, that was awesome. I realy liked Eric too, but he's gone. I understood how he felt about being excluded and all, but he took it out the wrong way on the other contestants.

    I actually know a lot of people that have been in those reality shows bravo makes, ...to name a few, some from Project Runway, Make Me A Supermodel and Top Chef... I really liked what they had going on... until now.

    This show really is just...I don't know from an Artist's point of view, having your work judged on such a commercial ft. personal level takes away the whole soul of art in general. I mean, why do artwork within a specific time frame and specific themes and guides? Might be because I went to schools where I was always taught to do whatever i wanted in art to hone my techniques and develop my signature/trademark, but I really don't feel the judges should really judge on what and how personal is a piece of work these artists do.

    Also...there are a lot of different genres/styles of art in the show and to have a particular set of judges with not so many different backgrounds really doesn't make me want to watch the show...

    now if there was a show o CURATORS...now THAT is a challenge.

    Anyhow...its all script to me.

    Most art shools DO give out assignments that follow specific themes and guidelines within a time frame. How else can students be evaluated for their understanding of instruction and concept and judged on their performance, creativity and representation of their artisitic view? I was certainly taught all that in college and there were plenty of nights where I had to stay up until dawn to finish the project and be ready to be critiqued by my teacher and peers that morning!

    That said, that's exactly the same objectivity of the show. You can't just wing it as some of the contestants have done and failed. They must follow the scope and create exactly that vision in their own way.

    As for the judges, I'm sure they have much more experience, backgrounds, credentials than what we're privvy to but do they really need all that in order to critique and judge their works? Nope. I doubt that you have as much knowledge as the judges (maybe you do!) but you are certainly worthy of being a judge. Did you at any time say while watching the show, "What the f*ck is that?" or "Wow, never thought of that. I clearly see and understand his perspective because...."

    To the other posters, I'm GLAD that Eric is gone. His constant wah-wah got on my nerves. Clearly, he was intimidated by artists who won challenges and he had no confidence in himself whatsoever and that's his downfall. The other artists who make fun of Miles are jealous of him because of his creative ingenuity.

    Jacque is a good artist but I think she takes help and advice from others. With some of the eliminations and others who won't offer her suggestions, I think we'll be seeing her slide back to the bottom and out in a week or two.

    I think the final two will be Miles and his "gf", Nicole.

    I too auditioned for the show here in Chicago. I was amazed at how many super talented people showed up (and not so talented). The line went around a complete city block. I did make it through to the interview portion. But when I realized they were all about" interesting personalities" and drama then they were about talent I kind of lost respect and interest for the project. I guess I should have known better. But it was fun up to that point. I do enjoy watching the show but the judges are more into verbal masturbation and trying to sound knowledgeable and "Kewl" then they are into art. (Like most people who wish they had talent but don't) It kind of ruins it for me.
    I assume the criteria for picking artist was the same for judges too.
    Saying the art world is "Fickle" is stupid
    It's like saying food service is fickle or health care is fickle.
    Every one is an artist. Great art relys on three things 1) The artist 2) the subject and 3) the Viewer. Like in health care you have the Doctor, the ailment and the patient and in food service you have the Chef, the food and the diner. It's all subject to interpretation and individualistness. I would love to have seen a average guy off the street, not related to the art world at all as one of the Judges.
