The question itself is a cliché: Do we need another TV reality show?
Ready or not, there are casting calls in progress for a new one, tentatively titled The Untitled Art Project. The winner of this competition will get a gallery show, cash, and a sponsored museum tour, although the details have not been disclosed. The show is being produced for Bravo by Sex and the City actress Sarah Jessica Parker and Magical Elves, the production company that created Top Chef and Project Runway.
Auditions have been held in New York at alternative art space White Columns, in Los Angeles at alternative space LaxArt, Chicago at the School of the Art Institute, and Miami at Frederick Snitzer Gallery.
Thirteen finalists will be selected. Filming is scheduled to begin in September.
