I Want My Art TV
In pointing toward the BBC2's new ten-parts--five-hour series on the British Museum (titled, in that dry-as-a-gin-martini-made-the-right-way way that only the Brits dare do, "The Museum"), Tyler Green noted:
And to think that PBS gives us, uh, well, what does PBS give us?! Art21 every few years and...Well, thanks to Robert Knafo, who brought you Studio Visit, those of us who want our art TV can look forward to the launch of NewArt TV (it's still under development but scheduled to launch this Summer). Promising "documentaries, studio visits, and reports on leading artists of our time" along with "global coverage of art events, major exhibitions, and gallery openings...performances and concerts," it promises to be there 24/7 (on the web) providing a forum for folks to "see, think about, and share their views on art." There's a blog incorporated into the preview design, which is how I understand one shares one's views. Here's a trailer of what to expect (here's a larger version if you have the connection to view it). Can't wait!
