art party / dance party aspires to be these things: an experiment in documentary theatre, a living art gallery, a life drawing session, a voyeuristic adventure, an exploration of figurative art in the context of both art history and contemporary times, a conversation about the purpose of art in society, an honest reflection on body image, and an intimate look at the relationship between the artist and inspiration in the creative process. this collaborative performance will include live drawing and painting by local Austin artists.
