“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
Live improv music by Rebelskamp
Tasty morsels by Chef David Ramsey
Dress for surreal fun and games!
free & open to the public

All art works will be for sale. Priority will be given to collectors that purchase a full figure (mix match head, torso, legs) until July 27th. Remaining Individual pieces will then be made available as a solitary purchase. (Please let staff know what piece you desire and your contact info.)
