Join artist, animator and cartoonist Ben Connors for an exploration into the collaborative drawing game, Exquisite Corpse. Working on different sections of the body, children are invited to make a life-size Plexiglas figure, responding to the bold, weird and wonderful world of the Chicago Imagists.
The Imagists’ interest in reverse-painting on transparent surfaces – inspired by show window designs and pinball machine graphics – and their affinity towards drawing with everyday materials like lipstick or mustard form the starting point for an afternoon of re-inventing the human form.
Suitable for ages 4 – 12.
