The comedy series is on Comedy Central. Abbi Jacobson has a background in art. TIME reported that she went to art school and wanted to be an illustrator.
A Piece of Work is everything you wanted to know about modern and contemporary art but were afraid to ask. A bicycle wheel attached to a stool; a giant canvas splattered with paint; dozens of soup cans…for many museum visitors, works like these prompt a ton of questions.
A Piece of Work is where Abbi Jacobson looks for answers to those kinds of questions. The show includes lively conversations with curators, artists, and some friends, such as: Hannibal Buress, Tavi Gevinson, RuPaul and Questlove.
