Life Drawing Class, The Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery, Vancouver, BC
A participatory event as a response to a postcard from a Holiday Inn, indicating that Denise’s missing housecoat was unfortunately not found. Over the course of three weeks, viewer participants at the Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery drew for twenty minute sessions. The viewers themselves became the artists (and documenters) of the work by producing the drawings shown in the exhibition. The 55 drawings that participants chose to donate to the Denise File were hung in the gallery for the remaining week of the exhibition.
