Dan Swartz delivers a lecture on Surrealism and the ideas behind EX.
Inspired by The Exquisite Corpse parlor game, which was originally intended to provoke further creativity by removing sole authorship and pre-conceptions of form, EX produces a vivid experience for its viewers, and facilitates new connections between the artists in disparate communities.
