Iggy Pop Poses Nude For Brooklyn Museum, Artist Jeremy Deller

Brooklyn Museum has revealed its plans for a fall exhibition featuring nude drawings of Iggy Pop. The pieces were pulled from a New York Academy of Art class that was conducted with 21 artists (“ranging from 19 to 80 years of age with varying backgrounds, and [including] undergraduate and graduate students, practicing artists, and retirees”) on February 21. Professor Michael Grimaldi led the life drawing proceedings, a collaboration between the museum and London-based conceptual artist Jeremy Deller.

“The life class is a special place in which to scrutinize the human form,” Deller explained in a press release. “As the bedrock of art education and art history, it is still the best way to understand the body. For me it makes perfect sense for Iggy Pop to be the subject of a life class; his body is central to an understanding of rock music and its place within American culture. His body has witnessed much and should be documented.”

Iggy Pop’s latest solo album—Post Pop Depression, a collaboration with Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme—is due out March 18th. Check out its first three singles below…
