Friday May 18th
The Carousel Space Project
Curated by Dan Swartz of Wunderkammer Co.
Abdi Farah, Ali Aschman, Avneet Pannu, Christina Long, Dan Callis, David Carpenter, Emily Weiss, Jake Saunders, Jennifer Mills, Jess Poplawski, John McCormick, John Silvis, Josh Dihle, Joshua Cave, Joyce Lee, Kate Mangold, Kathryn Drury, Kristina Paabus, Lacey Richter, Liza Cucco, Nicholas Steindorf, Reid Strelow, Robin Kang, Sommer Starks, Stephanie Carpenter, and Zach Klein.
Inspired by The Exquisite Corpse parlor game, which was originally intended to provoke further creativity by removing sole authorship and pre-conceptions of form, EX will produce a vivid experience for its viewers, and facilitate new connections between the artists in disparate communities. As part of their mission to revitalize communities through contemporary art, Wunderkammer Company is interested in the innovation inherent to the collaborative process. To facilitate this, EX takes the Surrealist tradition of the Exquisite Corpse and creates an indirect collaboration between artist, curator, and administrator.
