"Exquisite Corpses: Drawing and Disfiguration"

"Exquisite Corpses: Drawing and Disfiguration"
The Surrealists invented exquisite corpse, a sort of multiperson blind collaboration in which one artist would draw part of a figure on a piece of paper, fold it over, then hand it to another artist who would add the next bit before repeating the process. The drawing would then be unfolded to reveal the hilariously disjointed final result. In this show, MoMA presents several examples of exquisite corpses, alongside contemporary works inspired by the game.
