“All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name.” ~Andre Breton
Exquisite Corpse is based on the Surrealists’ techniques exploiting the mystique of spontaneity and collaborative creativity through a visual parlor game.
Each participating artist was given a blank piece of paper on which they created one third of a figure (head or torso or legs, assigned at random). KALEID Gallery staff then collected and arranged all 69 unique works of art into what promises to be a fantastic exhibit of unexpected visual mayhem.
Opening reception: Saturday, July 14th at 7pm
