Exquisite Corpse Exhibit at Hardy Gallery

The Hardy Gallery is seeking professional artists interested in participating in an exhibit based on the surrealist concept known as the “Exquisite Corpse,” to be on display at the Anderson Warehouse from Sept. 4 to Oct. 13. Works must be delivered by Aug. 10.

The exhibit will feature works on paper including printmaking, drawing, pastel, painting, collage, etc.

Printmakers are invited to participate in a portfolio exchange, and will be given specific instructions as to paper, size, bleeds, number in the edition, etc. There will be seven exquisite corpse figures comprised of four individual print sections per figure, for a total of 28 printmakers’ works exhibited.

In the spirit of the Exquisite Corpse, artists may create any image as long as the transition marks are followed to provide continuity.

In addition, visual artists are invited to participate in the End-to-End component of Exquisite Corpse. For the End-To-End section of the exhibition, works done on paper in any media will be displayed end-to-end, with each artist given a template to follow so that the works meet up coherently to produce a larger work or narrative. Artists are free to do whatever they wish as long as the specifications are met. In the spirit of the Exquisite Corpse these are generalities and you may do anything you want as long as the transition marks are followed to create continuity.

Artists who are interested in participating should email Sarah at [email protected] by March 1, specifying which component they wish to participate in. For questions please contact the Hardy at 920.854.2210.
