The show's premise? Fourteen aspiring artists will compete for a solo show at a nationally recognized museum plus a cash prize. Hosting the show will be art enthusiast China Chow, who will also judge the artists along with a pretty cool panel of judges including Bill Powers, a New York Gallery owner and literary art contributor; Jerry Saltz, current art critic for New York Magazine; and Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, curator and owner of Salon94 gallery. World-renowned art auctioneer Simon de Pury acts as the series Tim Gunn, mentoring the artists along the way. We like!
Mendenhall's past work has ranged from surreal pop art with a twisted sense of humor to minimal installation art, so we're not quite sure what to expect from him on Work of Art. However, if we know Miles' boundless creativity and amazing talent, we're quite sure he'll make an impact! Preliminary intel indicates that he's got some wild tricks up his sleeve, and we can't wait to watch!
The show premieres on June 9th on the Bravo network. And before you even ask, yes, there will be a premiere party in Minneapolis, and duh, of course l'etoile is involved -- but we're keeping that info under wraps for the moment!!!
A previous piece by Miles, circa 2009. We hear his work on the show, however, takes a quite a different spin.
