The Exhibit: A New Art-Based Reality Competition Series

The Exhibit is a fresh take on art-based reality tv competitions, brought to you by MTV and… The Smithsonian?! Check out the trailer!

There are a million reality competition series out there, some good and some bad. But, in my opinion, all are worthy of my time… for at least one episode. And I’m excited about this one! I’ve grown tired of food and fashion-based competition shows; I need something new, particularly in the world of art and design. The Exhibit, a new, fresh, art-based reality series, is definitely going on my to-watch list!

If you’ve read this blog, you know I live in the DC area. As a result, I have access to some of the most incredible art museums in the world. Whether it’s a visit to Glenstone, The Renwick, or The Hirshhorn (to name a few of my favorites), this town is dripping with creativity, past and present. Now, MTV and The Smithsonian are joining forces to bring a youthful, artistic edge to reality competition television. Who knows if this show will work or not, but I am so down to try it out. Will you watch The Exhibit?

Produced in partnership with Smithsonian Channel™ and the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the new docu-competition series hosted by MTV News’ Dometi Pongo will follow seven diverse artists as they compete for a once-in-a-lifetime exhibit at the Hirshhorn. Featuring Melissa Chiu, Director of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, as lead judge with respected art-world insiders Abigail DeVille, JiaJia Fei, Samuel Hoi, Adam Pendleton, Keith Rivers, Kenny Schachter and Sarah Thornton as guest judges. The series is also set to air on Smithsonian Channel™ on Tuesday, March 7 at 9PM ET/PT and every week thereafter.
