Exquisite Corpse-ing at the MoMA

Exquisite Corpses: Drawing and Disfiguration opens Wednesday at the Museum of Modern Art (NY), and runs through July 9. I find it curious that whenever we do an exquisite corpse project in a class (usually once a term), there is as much fascination over the name as there is in the drawings that result. After reading this history of the practice, I like to think "Senegal Oyster" came in a close second.
