Art Show/Model Show
August 29 - September 14
at the The Off-Shoot, 2211-A Hidalgo Street, near E. 7th Street and Robert Martinez (behind Joe's Bakery)
paper chairs’ upcoming multi-media performance that will explore the usually private experience of art-modeling and the human & artistic queries that are encountered through the discipline. Created by Kelli Bland, Meghan Morongova, Michelle Keffer, Jorge Sermini and Jen Brown, ART SHOW/MODEL SHOW is based on their experiences as art models as well as interviews with local visual artists and other art models in the Austin community.
ART SHOW/MODEL SHOW aspires to be these things: an experiment in documentary theatre, a living art gallery, a life drawing session, a voyeuristic adventure, an exploration of figurative art in the context of both art history and contemporary times, an honest conversation on body image, and an intimate look at the relationship between the artist and inspiration in the creative process. This collaborative performance will include live drawing and painting by local Austin artists.
paper chairs is excited to present this new devised work at at the OffShoot Aug. 29 through September 14th. Stay tuned to paper chairs’ Facebook and website for more details as we get closer to the production!
