Curated by Jenny Lam, Exquisite Corpse is an independently run art show that features works across all media—illustration, photography, animatronics and pillow-making… and everything in between—by 40 artists from Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Amsterdam, and Melbourne. Arranged into groups and pairs, these artists—most of whom were strangers to one another before this project—were given one month to create new art, with no limitations or rules other than to work together. Some groups adhered to the exquisite corpse tradition, while others redefined the very idea of collaboration.
Melbourne artists Adriane Strampp, Irene Wellm and Kirsten Perry have put together a drawing, each working on their section without having seen the other artists section, until the work was completed.
Exquisite Corpse is located on the second floor of:
