GET NUDE, GET DRAWN
In 2011, artists Mike Perry and Josh Cochran introduced “Get Nude Get Drawn,” an interactive arts experiment that celebrates “the nude” by recruiting non-professional models through social media to get naked for a two-day marathon drawing session to pose.
During The Other Art Fair, each model will pose for a 30-minute drawing session with 8 notable artists, including Perry and Cochran, who will create as many portraits as possible within that time frame. The models are then presented with one of their portraits and the rest are sold at the fair.
“Get Nude, Get Drawn” has been shown at exhibitions in New York and London and gathers a talented list of participating artists and over 200 models who have participated in the project to date.
GIPHY ARTS PRESENTS: THE MOVING STAND
With artists and works geared towards movement, The Moving Booth presented by GIPHY Arts presents dynamic works of art by five talented digital artists who are building the awareness of the GIF as an artistic medium and format.
