Conduit Gallery will open Exquisite Corpse, a new collaborative group exhibition fundraiser with an online preview, August 12th, 2020 and a physical exhibition in the gallery available to view in person via timed reservations August 15th through August 22nd, 2020.
Conduit Gallery artists will participate in the drawing game Exquisite Corpse made famous by Surrealist artists of the early 20th century. In the Exquisite Corpse, also known as Cadavre Exquis, participants play by taking turns drawing sections of a body on a sheet of paper, folded to hide each individual contribution. The first player adds a head—then, without knowing what that head looks like, the next artist adds a torso, and so on. In this way, a strange, comical, often grotesque creature is born. Artists will be grouped into three participants per drawing and collaborate to complete one drawing for a total of forty artworks that will be exhibited on the Conduit Gallery website and in the gallery as well as sold as a fundraiser with one hundred percent of sales donated to Dallas based artist support fund, E.A.S.L
In addition to viewing the works in the exhibition, a “Buy it Now” option will be available online. Beginning Saturday, August 15th, viewing the exhibition in person at Conduit Gallery will be BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Timed tickets will be available via an online reservation system at conduitgallery.com. Hours for gallery appointments will be August 15th through August 22nd from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
