Coming Soon: A visit from local artists and editor Gavin Edwards of The Beautiful Book of Exquisite Corpses

Gavin Edwards, editor of The Beautiful Book of Exquisite Corpses will be visiting Ross Gallery on Central Campus on Wednesday October 31, 2018 from 11:00am to 1:00pm. Accompanying Edwards will be local artists and book contributors Dustin Harbin and Holly Keogh. Be sure to stop by as the first 200 visitors will receive a FREE copy of the book!

The game of Exquisite Corpse is simple: two or more people create an unpredictable artwork by folding the paper to hide each contribution, leaving only small connective lines for clues. The unfolded page reveals a finished collaboration—sometimes wacky, sometimes twisted, and always unique. With this book, you can create your own Exquisite Corpses, with friends or on your own, because the pages are already packed with potential collaborators.– Penguin Random House
