As the kick-off to our 25th Anniversary Capital Campaign, we have organized a phenomenal exhibition of 20 unique drawings by many local Las Vegas artists, as an Exquisite Corpse exhibition; which will open with a VIP reception on Preview Thursday May 2, 2013, 5 - 9pm.

This historically important exercise in collaboration and technique is being organized as a benefit exhibition, with 100% of the proceeds to support the CAC and its future endeavors. It is simultaneously a celebration of the artists within the Las Vegas community, as well as homage to CAC’s existence as a collaborative organization that serves this community.

Based upon the premise of the original parlor game from the early 1900’s, Exquisite Corpse is a collaborative process in which artists are assigned a section of the body to draw, the paper is then folded to conceal the work and is passed to the next artist for their contribution. Through the Surrealist principle of metaphoric displacement, the final images only vaguely resemble the human form, and thus the Exquisite Corpse or Cadavre Exquis.

Artists:

Erik Beehn, Mark Brandvik, Diane Bush, JW Caldwell, Mathew Couper, Justin Favela,  Susanne Forestieri, Nancy Good, Brent Holmes, Shawn Hummel, Alisha Kerlin, Su Limbert,  David Ohlerking, JK Russ, Sean Russell,  Brent Sommerhauser,  Brian Swanson,  Todd VonBastiaans, Joseph Watson, RC Wonderly.
