The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center threw their Art Party on September 13, and along with the entertainment, the food and the crowds, they opened a new show called “Exquisite Exhibit: Parlour Games from the Studio Artist Program.” Knowing their first audience would be party-goers, the Contemporary made the exhibit kind of a game. Twenty one artists were tasked with working on seven works of art in the style of exquisite corpse drawings—a sort of collaboration where no one sees the whole picture until the end. WABE’s Myke Johns went down to the galleries to speak with the show’s curator Joey Orr.
