Miles Coote completed his Masters Degree in Fine Art from the University of the Arts, London in 2015. He has performed and collaborated with many artists including Prof Oreet Ashery, Dr Owen Parry and The Dalston Ballet Company and featured in the Biopic, Rocketman.
Miles researches nudity as a queer method of exchange between audiences, lgbtqia+ communities and organisations. He has formed queer life drawing projects: the Bareback Museum, which investigates sexual health and identity; and QueerLDC (Queer life drawing conversation) a weekly online drawing event about Queer Bodies. He was awarded a Vice Chancellor’s award for an MA at Chelsea University of the Arts London.
The Bareback Museum is a Life Drawing and Live Art performance workshop, collectively working with audiences to open conversations about sexual health. It has been curated within Queer fringe festivals at Tate Britain and the Barbican Centre. In 2018, Miles collaborated with the Tavistock Institute to realise a life drawing performance workshop and reflective layer at the Bloomsbury Theatre, with the support from the Institute of Advanced Studies, UCL.
