New York, NY, February 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- International Arts Movement is proud to welcome Wunderkammer Company's “EX: Collaborative Creation,” an exhibit curated by Bonnie K Mancini. EX will open March 8th at International Artist Movement (IAM)’s Midtown gallery, Space 38|39, and will continue through March 30, 2012.
As part of their mission to revitalize communities through contemporary art, Wunderkammer Company is interested in the innovation inherent to the collaborative process. To facilitate this, EX takes the Surrealist tradition of the Exquisite Corpse and creates an indirect collaboration between artist, curator, and administrator. Inspired by The Exquisite Corpse parlor game, which was originally intended to provoke further creativity by removing sole authorship and preconceptions of form, EX will produce a vivid experience for its viewers, and facilitate new connections between the artists in disparate communities.
For the duration of its stay at IAM there will be several corresponding events in celebration of Surrealist ideas and collaborative processes: A lecture by Daniel Swartz of Wunderkammer Company, a viewing of Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast, and a colloquium with Lucy Collins and Tove Hermanson on the influence of Surrealism on Fashion. “EX: Creative Collaboration” will also travel to Chicago, IL, and Fort Wayne, IN throughout 2012.
International Arts Movement (IAM) exists to gather artists and creative catalysts to wrestle with the deep questions of art, faith, and humanity, in order to inspire the creative community to engage the culture that is and create the world that ought to be. By partnering with arts communities throughout the world, IAM is a generative, re-humanizing force among artists of all disciplines.
