Artists on the Teevee

Serving up aesthetic delectation in two distinct flavors...

A window to the world

Elsewhere in the country, the third season of PBS' Art:21 apparently kicked off last night. In Chicago it hits WTTW's airwaves this evening at midnight.

The first program of the season (out of four) focuses on "power and its victims" (a timely topic) and profiles Krzysztof Wodiczko, Laylah Ali, Ida Applebroog and Mr. Spectacular himself, Cai Guo-Qiang. David Alan Grier hosts (which sounds pretty alright).

The second installment, airing next week, is hosted by Isabella Rosellini (aka, Astrid Weller) and profiles artists who deal with questions of memory: Susan Rothenberg, Mike Kelley, Josiah McElheny and that Dynamo from Tokyo, Hiroshi Sugimoto.

Update: Martin shares his feelings on part one

It's only mostly dead

Anyone thought about ARTSTAR recently?

Well, apparently it's still on.

In fact, at the end of their fall openings review, Richard Holland and Duncan MacKenzie of Bad at Sports promise a forthcoming interview with the show's producer, Chris Sperandio.

So, there's that. And I know I'll be listening.

Still, it's not like anyone's going to actually see the show, right? (Unless they subscribe to VOOM and, I mean, really...)
