On Sunday February 21, 2016, 21 artists from all walks of life gathered at the New York Academy of Art for a special life drawing class with a guest model: American rock legend Iggy Pop. The class was organized by the Brooklyn Museum and conceived by artist Jeremy Deller.
In stark contrast to his kinetic stage persona, Pop methodically posed nude on a different kind of stage, whilst the participating artists—representing New York’s diverse community and ranging from 19 to 70 years of age—depicted his body in the wide-ranging styles expected from a mix of students, practicing artists and retirees.
Iggy Pop Life Class includes drawings by all participating artists, with works ranging from five-minute sketches to studies to presentation drawings—107 works in all. Also included are candid photos of the process alongside comparative works from the Brooklyn Museum’s collections. The book features an introduction by Deller, an interview with Pop about his rationale for participating in this project and an essay on the practice of life drawing in art history and the studio.
British artist Jeremy Deller (born 1966) explores manifestations of the social imagination in English popular culture. This publication offers an overview of how the artist has constructed scenarios, interventions and images that explore the possibilities of collective creation today.

Remapping social and cultural territories, Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller (born 1966) has alternately taken on the roles of artistic producer, publisher, film-maker, collaborator, curator, parade organizer and cultural archivist. Over the past two decades, he has been a pioneering and highly influential figure in contemporary art, helping to rewrite the rules of artistic practice with his extraordinary collaborative interventions, which have included parades, battle re-enactments and exhibitions of folk art. This comprehensive catalogue is published for Deller’s first major survey exhibition. Employing a wealth of ephemera, critical writing and documentary and artwork photography, this beautiful book is the first and only complete survey of the artist’s multifaceted practice.

Ever since completing his “Manchester Procession” (2009), British artist Jeremy Deller (born 1966) has described his practice as “Social Surrealism”: “It’s going back to the original idea of carnival and procession, inverting reality and changing reality if only for a day or a week...” For more than a decade, Deller has been at the forefront of a generation of artists who have reimagined the possibilities of public space, orchestrating real life scenarios to illuminate larger social realities. His best known work is the 2001 “Battle of Orgreave” project, for which he collaborated with re-enactment societies to recreate a 1984 confrontation between striking British miners and police. On September 15 2010, Robert Eikmeyer and Alistair Hudson met Deller in his flat in London to talk about his work. This audio CD documents their conversation.
