Fashion's Night Out: That Dame Upstairs life drawing drop-in at Cornerhouse

Susie Stubbs

A life drawing and photography drop-in evening event for Fashion’s Night Out – presented by underground performance collective, The Sisters Gorgeous.

The Sisters Gorgeous and friends host a life-drawing drop in and photography session at Cornerhouse during the Weekender – painted, styled and clad in a fully monochrome palette for a DIY evening inspired by Hollywood’s greatest movie (and killer couture) icons. Reach for your pencils to capture razor-sharp cheekbones, or, if you prefer a camera, expect to direct a domestic mise-en-scène. Betrayal never looked so fabulous. The evening is accompanied by a 1940s and 1950s soundtrack, with surprise lip-syncs of classic film noir exchanges as the living statues you draw or snap momentarily spring to life. The whole affair takes its inspiration from Cornerhouse’s current exhibition, Double Indemnity, which in turn is inspired by Billy Wilder’s classic film noir of the same name. Part of Fashion’s Night Out. Cornerhouse, Gallery 3, 70 Oxford Street, M1 5NH, 6pm-9pm, Thursday 10 October, free.
