blind “exquisite corpse” drawing collaborations betweenartists inside and outside of prison walls

opening reception:

SATURDAY May 6th8:00pm to 12:00am@ The Padlock Gallery1409 Ellsworth

Exquisite Corpse is a drawing game in which two artists collaborate on a drawing of a figurewithout being able to see what the other is drawing. A piece of paper is folded in half and one person draws a head on one side then the other person draws a body on the other. Afterwards the paper is unfolded and the collaboration is revealed.

In this brand new show from the Padlock Gallery pairs of artists, consisting of one currently in prison and one currently out of prison, were randomly teamed up to play the game. The artists in prison were all sent drawing paper folded in half and randomly assigned to draw a head or body (some had their paper confiscated and had to hand in paper from “approved” paper dealers). These drawings were then masked before being given to the outside artists to complete. No one saw what the other one had drawn.

This same process was done with students at YOUTHBUILD Charter School who collaborated with ten young people their own age who are currently incarcerated in Philadelphia. The show wil be up until the month of May and the artists on the inside will get copies of their work sent to them.
