paper chairs proudly presents Art/Model Show: Subject
the second installation in our performance series exploring the personal stories, cultural perceptions and creative queries surrounding art modeling and live figurative drawing sessions.

2 weeks only -8 performances!
Friday Feb. 26 - Monday Feb. 29
& Thursday March 3- Sunday March 6th, 2016
at Art.Science.Gallery.

This multi-media production, devised by performers who model in Austin's visual arts community, layers performance, recorded video interviews of local artists and models, and live figure drawing.  A first installation in the series, titled Art Show/Model Show, was originally produced at The Off Shoot in 2013 and was described as "a fearless combination of humor and poignancy [;with];... a unique perspective from behind the canvas" (Broadway World Austin.)

Our 2016 performance will dig deeper into the individual's perspective, with new cast members and video content that includes broader voices and fresh stories. This version of the Art/Model Show experience includes a host of insights into the timeless exchange between the artist and model.  In this modern world, where the digital image abounds, why do artists still hire live models as subjects? How does a live connection color the creative experience?  How does the relationship with the body affect the way we approach our work, our lives?

This installation is the next chapter in the series' exploration of the creative process. We've added two experienced Austin models to our cast, Brittany Anne Robertson and David G. Robinson, as well as brand new art model/theatre maker/visual artist Annie McCall. We are thrilled to set this performance inside Art.Science.Gallery. at Canopy. By performing this documentary theatre experience in an intimate contemporary art gallery, we bring the audience even closer to the exchange between the artist and model and their exercise in expression, perspective and time.
