Join art writer and theorist Dominic Blake and award-winning artist Kate Wilson as they explore the art historical relationship between the muse and the artist in response to Pasquarosa’s early career.

Join art writer and theorist Dominic Blake and award-winning artist Kate Wilson as they explore the art historical relationship between the muse and the artist in response to Pasquarosa’s early career.

Drawing parallels between Pasquarosa’s experience as life model and sitter for Nino Bertoletti, they will reflect on the connection between nudity, hierarchy and cultural norms in an effort to understand how these factors may generate societal preconceptions of the model-artist relationship. Through challenging these ideas, it might be possible to arrive at a greater degree of equality between the roles.

Blake and Wilson will deliver two short lectures during the first half of the evening, followed by a panel discussion. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and/or add comments within an open Q&A during the second half.
