Long Distance exquisite corpse – Ted Joans

Ted Joans’ masterpiece of collaborative drawing, Long Distance (in which I have a very tiny part by having drawn the last panel), is on display as part of the large exhibition “Surrealism Beyond Borders” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY. The show later travels to the Tate Modern in London. Ted began Long Distance in London in 1976 and invited participants to contribute (132 in all) over many years and regions of the world. It was never sent through the mail, only hand-carried. More wonderful works of Ted’s and of many Surrealists (et ses alentours) around the world are included in the exhibition and catalogue.  This is only the second time the original Long Distance has been shown in public: the world première was the beautiful David Hammons exhibition at Maumaus Lumiar Cité in Lisbon, in 2019.  Ted Joans Lives!

Video of the show released by the Met, with curator Stephanie D’Alessandro.
