Exquisite Corpse Games
June 8 – July 31
Exquisite Corpse is a game-registered in the Library of Congress for almost 100 years. Throughout the years it has been played by many, never like this version before.
Each year every piece created is a unique work of art that is part of the energetic flow. It is a unique blind collaboration and a very individualized experience, all at once. This exhibit will feature works from the 2017 & 2018 Games.
The stories are remarkable and mind blowing. Surrealism at its finest.
