We've said it before and we'll say it again, Jim Kempner is the Larry David of the art world. Self-deprecating, eager to fist bump and sporting a bald pate, the art dealer pokes fun at the world of high-class galleries with ease in "The Madness of Art," his hilarious online parody project.
Kempner is the writer, director and star of the short web series, constantly showcasing a sense of humor every skeptical art observer can enjoy. His recent episode, "CANDY Part 2 (Counting Chickens)," is no letdown:
The episode begins with the zany art dealer singing the tune of "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" at his gallery (Jim Kempner Fine Art), awaiting the finalization of a pretty sweet sale. However, what started as a sure deal ends with flames, red wine spillage and the befuddled expression Kempner has perfected throughout his four-season series.
What do you think, readers? Could the art world use a few more Jim Kempners?
