This summer, Exquisite Corpse Company made a home on Governors Island to present its latest, large-scale, immersive performance event, Secession 2015. The lives and work of the artists of the Vienna Secession feuled over 20 emerging visual artists to create new pieces in response. A company of seven playwrights, four directors, and seven actors will brought the gallery to life in an original performance piece born of the same. Creating a living gallery, audiences weaves through the walls of art guided by the the muses and ghosts that inspired them.
