A surrealist parlor game now on the iPad by Lawndale Artist Studio Program resident Anthony Thompson Shumate, Exquisite Corpse is a drawing journey into chance encounters with surprising juxtapositions. As an "artist participant", guests create a composition on the drawing panel and then pass it to another person without knowing what is being created. Play from two to five panels with no drawing skill needed.
The ending composition is that of a body, or a “corpse”, as the head, torso, legs and perhaps feet have all been imagined and executed by different creators. The final combination is a stitched together figure, one drawing panel bearing no relation to the neighboring panels, thus revealing a hilarious being.
