The 81st ASA Annual Meeting will be held November 15-18, 2023, at the Hilton Arlington National Landing Hotel, 2399 Richmond Highway, Arlington, VA. Online registration is required.

I argue that the creativity of "posing amateurs"--in contrast to professional models, a distinction explored by panelist Aurelie Debaene--is perhaps less skilled, but more personally meaningful in co-creating a collaborative artwork for all to publicly see, judge, and appreciate. Third speaker is Tzachi Tamir, on the artist-life model relationship.
