“Exquisite Corpse” Exhibition Opening
The Los Angeles Printmaking Society will be holding the opening reception to their member exhibition “Exquisite Corpse” being displayed at the Printing Museum through September. Exquisite corpse is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule or by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed. Each artist is invited to create a part or a complete figure, that will be divided up in 3 15 inch square sections: head, midsection and legs. The curators of the exhibition will then mix and match the different pieces.
