Exquisite Everywhere

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

Who turned on the Exquisite Corpse Zeitgeist? The assembled, collated, spliced, joined, and improvised leviathans are grotesquely leering and freaking out viewers in every corner of the City, and just in time for Halloween.

In Fort Greene, the DIY homemakers Second-Floor present A Feast of Fools. Including over sixty artists, the exhibition reinterprets the exquisite corpse as a carnivalesque bacchanal where hierarchies between body parts dissolve into a throbbing hermaphroditic mass.  This should be great; one half of Second-Floor, Sarvia Jasso, was one half of Brooklyn is Burning, dissolved after a hysteric brought down their event at PS1.
