Exquisite Copse

Exquisite corpse  is a way of assembling a collection of works that are related in some way.  There is no curator.  Instead, each collaborator adds a work in sequence, either by following a rule (e.g. must be green)  or by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed.  The Broken Telephone Project a 2013 collaboration of polymer artists, is one example of this form. There are others.

The Da Vinci Art Alliance’s latest sculpture exhibition, Exquisite Copse, is in keeping with the genre of a collection of works,  and is also a play on words being situated in a park with a small group of trees which is precisely what a copse is.  The sculptures are  currently on display at Palumbo Park in South Philadelphia.  Part of Da Vinci Fest, the exhibit runs through November 6, 2020.
