In New York's "Iron Artist" competition, artists create art and curate an exhibit in record time. Inspired by the original Japanese cooking show Iron Chef, the competition consists of two duels, each 45 minutes, in which opponents create artwork in response to a theme revealed to them on the spot. Running commentary is provided by a panel of judges, roving commentators, and prominent New York art critics.
