The drawing experience | Emma Shapiro

11 diciembre, 2019 -7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


11th of December – From 7 pm to 8.30 pm

Price: € 10  / € 5 for coworkers

When was the last time you sketched a life model? Whether it was yesterday or never, you are invited to a relaxing evening of sketching from a professional life model. No experience necessary! Instruction will be available on a one-to-one basis if wanted, but otherwise this is an hour of “open sketch”. 
We will start with a few short poses and end with a longer pose for a more detailed drawing opportunity. Supplies and refreshments will be provided (though feel free to bring your own drawing pad!). 
I look forward to drawing with you! As Vincent VanGogh said, “I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing”

I use a fluidity of media to discuss memory, empathy, and ancestry with and within the body. Using my own body as my primary tool, I seek to represent the human and female form as a timeless event, ephemeral yet fixed through genealogical and physical memory. I see my body as a vessel for ancestral history — a link to family lost to anti-semitism and the Irish Famine — and thus a primal act of resistance against injustice, and a representation of hope.

Because of my use of nudity, my work has at times pulled me into engaging with the objectification and censorship of the nude. Many of these images have garnered misunderstanding, body-shaming, and sexualization, all of which often pulls the work into a contemporary dialogue on why we approach the nude skeptically and with embarrassment. My frustration with this has fueled my activism project Exposure Therapy, which has now reached over 10 countries around the world and empowers anyone who seeks to end the oppression of the female body.

I graduated from The Rhode Island School of Design in 2010, after which I created a successful and personally inspiring career as an artist’s model. This career has led to a drawing philosophy which I am asked to teach at a variety of schools and universities, and the birth of my body of work.
