About the Project
Exquisite Corpses constituted a new variation on the classic surrealist drawing game, in which multiple people contribute to a drawing or text, but conceal their contributions from each other until the last person has drawn or written his or her part. Exquisite Corpses allowed each participating artist to interpret a different part of the human body; the end results were then displayed in conjunction with each other.
Pairing up prominent fashion designers with contemporary visual artists, the teams worked to produce bold new design projects, and selected works were sold to benefit for Creative Time. Exquisite Corpses launched a year of projects illuminating the depth of creativity in fashion design and honoring the discipline as an important artistic endeavor.
