Is This TV Show About Art?

I checked out the second episode of Bravo’s seriesWork of Art: The Next Great Artist.” For the first part of the hour, I wasn’t sure if I was watching an art show or an “Amazing Race” knock-off: there was a demonstration of “parkour,” a French-derived daredevil exercise done on city architecture. It was supposed to give the contestants inspiration for the episode’s assignment: create “a piece about motion.” It was downhill from there.
