About

The Exquisite Corpse (Cadavre Exquis) was a favorite Surrealist game from the 1920s onwards. The game involves multiple participants contributing to a single drawing. Traditionally, participants create their section of the drawing and then cover it so the next person is ‘drawing blind.’ Once all participants have finished, the drawing is unfolded and revealed.

In 2010, we commissioned 92 artists of the region to produce 30 drawings, to mark the 30th anniversary of the Paul Robeson Galleries. In the spirit of Paul Robeson, we sought to promote free speech and creative expression, reflecting a multitude of voices through our exhibitions, programs, and publications. The anniversary exhibition manifested Paul Robeson Galleries’ mission of inclusivity, participation, and community outreach, and we are please to present a selection of the works.
