Exquisite Corpse for Unprecedented Times: A Socially Distanced Art Project

PHILADELPHIA -- (February 8, 2021) – Physical separation didn’t mean lack of artistic collaboration for over 100 artists from around the country and beyond.

Unprecedented Times, an exhibition inspired by the surrealist game Exquisite Corpse, features the work of artists who collaborated remotely, digitally and through the mail over the last six months.

An open call for participants yielded over 100 interest artists located everywhere from Philadelphia, Miami and Denver to as far away as London and Helsinki. Artists were broken up into small groups to collectively assemble a work of art across a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, collage, fibers, assemblage, sculpture and writing.

The exhibit is available for in-person viewing through a private appointment at ekg@sciencecenter.org

The Science Center will also feature some of the participating artists at the Virtual First Thursday taking place during Venture Café Philadelphia’s February 4th Thursday Gathering. Guests will be able to interact with over 15 art galleries including the Science Center’s own Esther Klein Gallery, in an informal virtual setting.

Additionally, the February 11th virtual reception during Venture Cafe, will feature presentations from select artists on their project contributions.

Exquisite Corpse’s closing reception will be tentatively scheduled for April. Please visit EKG’s website for updates.
