Exquisite Corpse Plaquette Project

An Exquisite Corpse is a method of illustration invented by Surrealists in the early 1910s, where each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence usually without seeing the prior portion. In 2016, the New England Chapter collaborated with the graduating class at North Bennet Street School to create 7 unique Exquisite Corpse plaquettes.
This year, we are excited to announce a new Exquisite Corpse collaborative project that will be open for all Guild members, from any chapter.

The project will be limited to 24 participants, which will yield 8 unique plaquettes. The final pieces will be auctioned off at the banquet during the Standards of Excellence Seminar in October.

Participants will receive a leather plaquette and be asked to create either the head, body or legs of the figure. Each collaborator is invited to complete their portion using any number of decorative leather techniques, which could include blind or gold tooling, onlays, surface gilding, inlays, painting, or other forms of mark making.

Each collaborator will have approximately 4 weeks to finish their portion during the months of March, April or May. Participants will receive specific instructions on layout and where the plaquette is to be shipped upon completion. We do ask for a small fee of $10 to help supplement the cost of leather, preparing the plaquettes and shipping costs.

When you register please mark which two months you would prefer to receive the plaquette. We will do our best to give everyone their first choice. Please email Chair Erin Fletcher if you have any questions.
