Iggy Pop Bares All for Art | JEREMY DELLER

Haven’t seen enough nudes on social media this year? How about male nudes? Seen any good ones? Probably not….. until now.

One of the greatest rockstars of all time, Iggy Pop, will have his royal jewels on display Fall of 2016 at the Brooklyn Museum courtesy of conceptual artist, Jeremy Deller. Pop posed nude for a life drawing class at the New York Academy of Art organized by the museum. Deller stated, “The life class is a special place in which to scrutinize the human form. 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.”

Deller is known for creating visual art that stimulates the mind along with challenging the cultural, societal and political norms.

In other related news, Iggy Pop and Queens of the Stone Age front man, Josh Homme, have a new album collaboration that was released in March of 2016 called Post Pop Depression.

Make sure to check out these musical and artistic goodies if you need a hand in brushing up on American culture.
