Part of The Marlborough Theatre’s Trans Pride Season.
Jared is a Brightonian artist and experienced trans male life model who finds the work liberating, affirming and fun, and wants to encourage the trans community to explore that too. He is teaming up with The Marlborough to host a trans life drawing night with a diverse range of models.
Figurative art has traditionally focussed on white, able-bodied, cisgender people. And we’ve seen enough of that. Cis bodies are everywhere, normalised in art, life and porn, whereas trans bodies are a political battleground for everybody but ourselves. By taking control of our own representation, we take back our bodily autonomy. By sharing our vision, we invite others to see it too.
We would like to encourage any trans person who might be interested in paid modelling on the night to get in touch, regardless of experience. Please email email@example.com to express your interest.
Make Art, Be Art.
All drawing materials will be supplied but feel free to bring your own, and absolutely all abilities are welcome.
Please note: this event is open to trans and non-binary individuals only.
