THE RETURN OF THE CADAVRE EXQUIS. Drawing Center, New York, 1993. 84 pp. with 37 ills. (14 col.). 22 x 14 cm. LC 93-73978 ISBN 0942324064 In English.
Documenting a three-year project involving hundreds of artists around the world, this small catalogue presents a selection of the unusual figure drawings and collages collaboratively produced by teams of artists using the techniques of the cadavre exquis, a game invented by the Surrealists in which images and texts are constructed from fragments contributed by the players. Includes a description of the project and a wide-ranging essay that discusses the Surrealists' introduction of play and chance into their working methods and compares their thematic and stylistic concerns with those reflected in the featured contemporary works.
