exquisite corpse: 60 artists, 20 pieces, 1 show, 2003

Derived from a parlor game (draw the head, fold the paper with only a glimpse of what is present, hand it off to the next person to conceive a middle region, fold and pass for the entails and the end), in the grand tradition of Surrealism, these images rely on chance, the meeting of sewing machine and Bible, intestine and giraffe, the meeting of disparate minds (ranging from Copenhagen to Saint Claire Shores)on a scrufty page.

Lydia Diemer, curator of the Exquisite Corpse show and MFA candidate in Printmaking at the University of Iowa.
