The Return of the Cadavre Exquis featured over 600 collaborative drawings by contemporary artists from around the world. The culmination of a two-year drawing project, the exhibition was composed of contemporary drawings based on the Surrealist parlor game, Exquisite Corpse, as well as a selection of works by Surrealist practitioners of the game. The exhibition was organized by The Drawing Center and Ingrid Schaffner, who initiated the project with the artists Kim Jones and Leonard Titzer.
