Originally invented by surrealists in the early 1900s, the exquisite corpse is a game in which players write on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal part of the drawing, and then pass it to the next player for further contribution. Throughout the decades, the game has evolved into many meanings and themes, and here at ARTSPACE, our exquisite corpse resides as a collaborative exhibition and fundraiser.
For this exhibition, 12 individual artists have been asked to carve three pieces of the linoleum to create a corpse. The three body pieces will be interchanged with each other to create the Exquisite Corpse (you can see just one example of this to the right). This exhibition will be on view from October 29th to December 31st.
The Exquisite Corpse Exhibition is free to the public. Please consider supporting ARTSPACE programming by joining us at the All Hallows Eve Costume Ball which will also serve as the opening reception.
