In February/March 2022, we asked over 60 artists to join us in creating a kind of exquisite corpse. (see definition here.)

Artists were given a sheet of printmaking paper with a rectangular embossment at the bottom. In the embossment, a small piece of text was applied. The artists did not know which book their text came from and where it fit with others.

So voila! The text is from chapter CIII of the book, “Lincoln in the Bardo“, by George Saunders. (Such a great book – we highly recommend reading it.)

The artworks are complete and they are spectacular. They are posted above as a continuous collection, in the order of the text in the book.

BONUS! The artworks are on display in Evanston in the windows of 1706 Sherman. It will be great to see all of the works together in one place. From April 3- April 30.

Read this terrific article by Adina Keeling at the Evanston Roundtable, titled “Dozens of local artists contribute to ‘Bardo’-themed installation on Sherman Avenue“.
