Baring All in The Name of Art
What does it mean to bare all in the name of art? Life drawing is standard practice in the art world. Artists come together to draw a model who poses completely nude, often directed by a tutor. With nudity practically taboo in Western society, it is one of the few instances in which nakedness is normalised. For many people, life drawing is an unfamiliar concept, and life modelling completely unimaginable. This programme is unique in connecting the experiences of artists, models and tutors, and illuminating a community that is perhaps under-explored in documentary media.
