DiverseWorks presents a screening of The Exquisite Moving Corpse. The Surrealist “Exquisite Corpse” was a French café parlor game. The Exquisite Moving Corpse is more of an artist chain letter. Sixty artists participated over a two-year period, beginning in March 2020. Each invited artist made a one minute video in response to the last frame of the previous minute. Most of the footage was shot, shared, and edited while participating artists worked in quarantine. Artists Chip Lord, Jack Massing and Sean Miller made the first three minutes and then handed it off to an evolving list of artists whom they invited – a jump into the unknown! Artists include: Mel Chin, Mark Dion, Kara Hearn, Hillerbrand+Magsamen, Nina Katchadourian, Kristin Lucas, Mary Mattingly, Tony Oursler, Phillip Pyle II, and William Wegman….and more!
