Simon takes every elimination to heart, so the double elimination this week was especially tough.

It was a great pleasure for me to have the contestants come to our downtown space at the beginning of this episode. It reminded me of the mini retrospective of Andres Serrano that we had installed for the shock art contest during Season 1.

Judging from the artists' reaction when China Chow described the challenge, this is one they felt clearly more at ease with than the one from last week. This impression got confirmed on my studio visit. Most artists were already quite advanced with their works.
