Episode 3: Interviews, from the Madness of Art
Who doesn't love a good fine art sitcom? Here at AFC we've come to consider ourselves voracious consumers of such projects: 2009's film Untitled, Bravo’s Work of Art, the Delusional Downtown Divas multi-episodic web series and now Jim Kempner's The Madness of Art (here’s his gallery being covered by LED throwies). In this latest glimpse into the White Cube, show producer and gallerist Jim Kempner spoofs the ridiculous realities of the world many of us live and work in. For example, in this episode, titled “Interviews,” we sit through the incredibly painful process of finding a new gallery assistant. A future episode, titled Yoko (Oh No) promises a special appearance by, you guessed it, Yoko Ono. We're rooting for a season finale where a giant Koons puppy comes to life, and leaves Chelsea crumbled in its wake. Also, Damien Hirst should get hit in the face with a pie.
