Real artists???

It seems like it's actually going to happen... rumors have been floating around for a couple of years now that a competition-based reality TV show about artists was in the works...

Bravo TV is holding auditions for their untitled show (which is the "brainchild" of Sarah Jessica Parker), looking for emerging or mid-career artists who "believe in their art and want the world to know."

I must admit that this show has me troubled - I always thought that artists were beyond the grips of the commercial TV world. However, as artists are using new media more and more, and fashion and art seem inextricably intertwined, this result seems inevitable. So, if you are willing to put yourself out there - really out there - in front of the whole world (and a different audience) - go ahead and apply... just count me out.
