A collection of life drawings of Iggy Pop by various artists are going to go on display at the Brooklyn Museum from November 2016 to March next year. 

The project was organised by British artist Jeremy Deller, perhaps best known for his reenactment of the Battle of Orgreave in 2001. 

Deller said: “Iggy Pop has one of the most recognisable bodies in popular culture. A body that is key to an understanding of rock music, and that has been paraded, celebrated, and scrutinised through the years in a way that is unusual for a man.

"It is also fair to say that it has witnessed a lot. It was for these reasons that I wanted him to sit for a life class.”
