The Elaborate Collaborate

The Elaborate Collaborate is a large-scale collaboration between Oklahoma visual artists. The exhibition embraces the exquisite corpse, as method of collaboration.

42 artists will create a series of multi media works on paper that will evolve over the five weeks (Jul-Aug 2015) it is installed at IAO Gallery in Oklahoma City. Ten video artists and one sound artist are creating a 10 minute video collaboration that will be screened during the exhibition. The public opening is during Premier on Film Row on July 17 from 6-10pm. An Exquisite Corpse Poetry Game Event will be held on Thursday, Jul30, led by poet and visual artist Kerri Shadid. There will be a closing reception on August 14 from 6-8pm.

Through this exhibition, the public will be invited to observe artists at work in the gallery, while watching a large-scale collaborative artwork take shape. Nothing of this kind has been done in Oklahoma.

Kelsey Karper and romy owens are independent curators leading this experimental exhibition.
