The roles of MOTHER and FATHER are needed for the performance component of a gallery exhibition in Chelsea. The show, spanning the month of September, features artist Jamie Diamond in the Ramis Barquet gallery. Auditions will be held throughout the months of June/July and applications should be submitted by JUNE 31. Please prepare a brief description of past work, resume and head-shot.
The performance consists of a 3-hour-long pose (broken down into 1/2 hour poses separated each by a 10 minute break) held in the form of a "living family portrait" with a steadfast commitment to working 9 hours a week for the month of September. The pay will be $10/hr and is an excellent opportunity for exposure and publicity.
The parts needed for the "living portrait" are the following:
-Mother (45-65y/o) -Father (45-65y/o)
