Swish, Sketch, Drag: A Warhol-inspired Life Drawing Salon
Floor 3, Susan and John Hess Family Theater
Join us for a life drawing class with models who are all performers in New York’s queer nightlife scene. A group of chic pen and ink drawings from the 1950s depicting friends vamping in drag serves as the touchstone for this event. The drawings provide a unique view in the semiprivate, pre-Stonewall queer milieu, and demonstrate Warhol’s sensitive understanding of self-fashioning, of self as performance. Drop in and draw for a few minutes—or longer—and stick around for surprise performances!
Instructor: Jacqueline Cedar
Models: Daphne Always, Blvck Laé D., Wo Chan aka Pearl Harbor, Maxxx Pleasure
Seminar Discussion: I Shot Andy Warhol—Labor, Feminism, and the Problem of Spectacle
