THE RETURN OF THE CADAVRE
July 9September 6, 1994
This presentation of collaborative drawings by
internationally known and emerging contemporary artists
was based on the Surrealist parlor game cadavre exquis, in
which several artists participate in creating a single drawing.
Completed in serial fashion, with each part folded to
obscure the previous artist's rendering, these drawings
and revelations that arise from the artists'
different styles and working processes. Organized by The
Drawing Center in New York City, this project and exhibition
presented collaborative drawings by two hundred artists
living around the world and working in a variety of media,
including Ida Applebroog, George Baselitz, Chuck Close,
Karen Finley, Jenny Holzer, Matt Mullican, Betye Saar, Jim
Shaw, Art Spiegelman, Megan Williams and John Toth.
