New reality TV show where the prize is a major museum survey

Would you participate in a reality TV show for the chance to put on a survey exhibition at a national museum?

A new reality TV show will have young artists throwing their hats in the ring for a major survey exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, US, along with a US$100,000 (approximately AU$143,630) cash prize.

The Exhibit: Finding the Next Great Artist is presented by MTV and the Smithsonian Channel, and will comprise six episodes hosted by Dometi Pongo. It will air on Fridays following RuPaul’s Drag Race on MTV from 3 March.
