An Exquisite Corpse at EMP
We’re moving into a new space and celebrating a whole year of arts programming in Baltimore! In celebration, we invited collaborating artists from our first year and new local faces to participate in a large-scale Exquisite Corpse project. The installation will permanently adorn one of the walls in our new space. We will be re-opening in the new space on 307 West Baltimore on November 2nd.
We’ll unveil the new space and installation as well as exhibit work and merch from our work over the past year.
WHAT IS EXQUISITE CORPSE?
A parlor game co-opted by the Surrealists of the early 20th century. Players take a folded piece of paper and each draw something based upon connecting a few revealed lines of the last piece. The unfolded creation is an Exquisite Corpse that reflects not only the work of the individual, but also the collective potential of the participants.
EMP Collective’s large-scale Exquisite Corpse will feature 22 local visual artists. The permanent installation will commemorate EMP’s first year of collaborative, multi-disciplinary art in Baltimore and tip its hat to even greater artistic growth to come.
Say hello to our wonderful participating artists (in no particular order):
