ART SHOW/MODEL SHOW is a multi-media performance that has been in development over the past year, earning a listing as one of the “Six stops to make your 2012 East Austin Studio Tour extra special” from Austin Chronicle’s Robert Faires and running a workshop performance in FronteraFest’s Mi Casa es su Teatro. Devised by performers who work as models in Austin’s visual arts community, this collaborative performance is also an exploration in documentary theatre, with interviews of local artists and models as well as live drawing and painting. It will also include a gallery show, curated by the Austin artists who hire these models.

ART SHOW/MODEL SHOW aspires to be: an honest representation of this (usually) very private world, a life drawing session, a living gallery, an exercise in perspective and time, a conversation about the purpose of art in society, and an intimate look at the singular relationship between the artist and model in the creative process. 

Devised by: Kelli Bland, Meghan Morongova, Michelle Keffer, Jorge Sermini and Jen Brown Directed by: Kelli Bland, Meghan Morongova Assistant Director: Rachel Dendy Technical Director/Design By: Steven Shirey Video by: Eric Graham, Tag Simler, Eliot Haynes Features interviews and work of: Jennifer Balkan, Eve Larson, Dave Larson, Chris Chappell, David Ohlerking, Karen Maness, Matt Stavsrowsky, Pablo Taboada, George Anderson, Steve Dubov, Heather Tolleson, and more!
