DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the Exquisite Corpse -- a Surrealist parlor game in which artists add to a piece without seeing what comes before -- collaborative groups of artists will connect their installations to each other in a game of chance, risk, and surprise. All work is based on a common theme: the tenets of survival as an artist.
