Life Drawing Cafe

Queer Life Drawing events hosted on alternate Tuesdays, hosted at Brief Encounter Cafe, Bexhill on Sea.

About the Event:

Life drawing cafe is a durational performance workshop exploring the hybridity of life drawing and cafes. This event is inspired by Queer life drawing conversations and Jurgen Habermas’s writings on coffee houses and the public sphere.

The event will run as hybrid event, online on Zoom and live from Brief Encounter Cafe, Sivyers, Bexhill-on-Sea (East Sussex, UK). Miles will host the event. You are welcome to draw, take part posing and workshopping a live art performance. Three sheets of A2 Cartridge Paper and drawing materials will be provided for participants attending at the venue, with an extra cost for additional paper. Participants may bring their own drawing materials, props and garments (suitable for life drawing).

The performance workshop was curated by Lucie Russell at the Copeland Gallery in September 2022 for the Exhibition “Making an Exhibition of yourself” in a group show with artists: Nicola J Reid, Jaffar Aly, Yo Keshh,Life Drawing 2B or Not 2B Collective, Breakfast Bodies, Sketch Appeal and Steve Russell. Since then, live events are led on a bi monthly basis at the Brief Encounter Cafe, Sivyers Auction Emporium, Bexhill on Sea.

The Brief Encounter Cafe has a fantastic selection of cakes and beverages available and original furniture for sale.

This event contains nudity. You must be eighteen or above to attend.
