Work of Art Sets Date for Second Season Launch, Releases List of Contestants, Guest Judges

If you were a fan of last year’s Sarah Jessica Parker-produced, “how can this possibly be a reality TV program?” show, Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, you likely already know that it was renewed for a second season. Come Wednesday, October 12th, the show will return to Bravo. The network has just recently unveiled its list of contestants and guest judges (Adam McEwen and KAWS among them). Our favorite, of course, is the contestant named “The Sucklord,” a toy designer who “blends geeky nerd obsessions with street-level hipster cool” and is “a master of media manipulation,” but it was enough for us just to hear what the guy calls himself. Bravo is touting that the new season will be a departure from the first and that “challenges range from inventive street art to the use of Parkour, a discipline where participants overcome obstacles using only their bodies to move from point A to point B in the most creative way possible…” Fortunately for the competing artists they add “as inspiration” to the end of that description, though since it’s reality TV, you can probably expect to see artists clumsily falling off ledges. Here’s a teaser video for the next season and for further reading, here’s ArtInfo‘s look at it.
