Work of Art: The Next Great Artist w/t ( x60′) – Competition series among contemporary artists that brings together fourteen aspiring artists to compete for a solo show at Brooklyn Museum, a cash prize of £100,000 and a sponsored national tour. In each episode, contestants will create unique works of art highlighting art’s role in everyday life, while they compete and create in a range of disciplines including sculpture, painting, photography and industrial design (to name a few). In working beyond their preferred mediums, artists will have to adapt quickly to changes in order to succeed. Completed works of art will be appraised by a panel of top art world figures including fellow artists, gallerists, collectors, curators and critics. The finalists’ work will be showcased in a nation-wide museum tour.
