Exquisite Corvallis is currently installed at The Arts Center in Corvallis, Oregon.
Project Description / Exquisite Corvallis
A stark and seemingly empty space will fill up over time as viewers choose to interact, participate, and develop an art installation. The Exquisite Corvallis is about engaging the community, all while creating a space ripe for collaboration, conversation, and connection. The art project expands on the foundation of the Exquisite Corpse and asks the community of Corvallis to create their own hidden masterpiece each person and section at a time. Three blank rolls of paper will be installed separately along the gallery walls. Incoming viewers will be prompted to participate and continue a drawing where the last person stopped. Only a few lines will be available for inspiration. That participant will be asked to roll up the paper so that only a few lines of their drawing shows to the next person. A week prior to the exhibition’s closing the three artworks will be revealed and exhibited to the community that helped create it.
