Iggy Pop Poses Nude for Life Drawing Class + Upcoming Museum Exhibition

The perpetually shirtless Iggy Pop recently went completely nude in the name of art.

Earlier this month, Pop posed nude for a life drawing class at the New York Academy of Art. The resulting artwork will be on display at the “Iggy Pop Life Class” exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum later this year. British artist Jeremy Deller conceived the show, which will feature the drawings of 21 artists between the ages of 19 and 80. Brooklyn Museum will debut “Iggy Pop Life Class” in fall 2016 before it goes on tour.

“The life class is a special place in which to scrutinize the human form,” Deller said 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,” he continued. “His body has witnessed much and should be documented.”

The Stooges leader will soon release his latest solo album, Post Pop Depression, a collaboration with Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme. It will land on March 18 via Loma Vista.
