Kansas City artist Peregrine Honig to appear on new Bravo reality series
Bravo's latest variation on reality-style game shows — "Work of Art" — will feature a Kansas Citian, Peregrine Honig. It's the second time in the last year that a Bravo show will feature a KC artist — last year Ari Fish was on "Project Runway."
"Work of Art" premieres at 10 p.m. Wednesday, June 9, on Bravo, Sunflower Broadband Channels 52 and 252HD.
Peregrine made a name for herself when a set of her prints were purchased by the Whitney Museum of American Art, establishing her as the youngest living artist to be included in the permanent collection. Peregrine’s sculptures, imagery, and texts explore themes of sexual vulnerability, trends in disease, and social hierarchies. Peregrine resides in Kansas City, MO where she attended Kansas City Art Institute. She currently curates projects and annual events under the umbrella "Fahrenheit" and owns a lingerie boutique "Birdies." To date, her work is part of the permanent collections of the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and The Chicago Art Institute, among others. She has had solo exhibits in Santa Fe, Kansas City, and Chicago, and has shown in group exhibitions in New York and across the globe. Peregrine is a recipient of the Art Omi International Artists’ Residency, the Charlotte Street Fund, and an Inspiration Grant. She recently produced a magazine titled Widow, in collaboration with Landfall Press, that explores the relationship between fashion and art.
