A Horde of Zombies (and Zombie-lovers) invade Light Grey Art Lab

Night of the Exquisite Corpse Opening Reception
Everyone crowds in to see all 52 pieces

Night of the Exquisite Corpse opened with an exciting reception this past Friday! A horde of guests were greeted by an appropriately ghoulish soundtrack as they marveled at each of expertly crafted, undead themed paper toys.

Zombie fans of all ages attended

It was a fun and high-energy exhibition and we had a fantastic turn out! We want to thank everyone that was involved, from near and far, for all of their hard work and enthusiasm for the show!

Be sure to check out all the pics on our flickr gallery! Besides getting a good feel for the vibe of the show, you can check out some artists posing with their pieces (sorry we didn't catch everyone, though!).

Big thanks to Chris Schons and Adam Hoppus, who co-curated the show! They poured time, blood, sweat and tears into brainstorming, planning, assembling and coding. Adam painstakingly cut out and assembled each of the three dimensional pieces on display, and Chris created this amazing interactive gallery!
