Survivor: Art Fair Artist – The Update


There was quite a stir on these pages this fall when I reported on the new Survivor series that was going to revolve around forty art fair artists and their trials and tribulations “surviving” in the art fair world. You know, it was a joke. But lo and behold it is becoming reality!

Sarah Jessica Parker to create a “Project Runway-type show for the art world”

I love Project Runway, watching unknown designers compete each week for their crack at the fashion world. Imagine my surprise when I read the following:

Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker and reality fctory Magical Elves are reportedly teaming up to create a Project Runway-type show for the art world.

“Art is a much more inclusive world than people think,” a spokesman for Magical Elves told Star Magazine. “We really feel there’s a way to show people how much they care about art in the same way Runway showed people how much they care about clothes. That accessibility is why we think the show can work.”

Parker – known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO television series Sex and the City, will mostly stay behind the scenes as an exec producer on the art show – which will air on Bravo – though she may pop up on camera if it makes sense creatively, Cutforth said. Parker has previously appeared as a guest judge on an episode of Project Runway.

Stay tuned. I’ll try to find out how you can be a contestant!

My thanks to Owen Williams at Showbiz Spy for revealing this important news.
