Exquisite Corpse: Art that's alive and kicking

Exquisite Corpse: Art that's alive and kicking

Art that keeps the imagination alive is part of what Kalamazoo's Exquisite Corpse is about. Zinta Aistars reports on how Arty Pants Button Mart funded a shared space that became home for a studio for an art collaborative.
Eana Agopian's gaze wanders out the third floor wall of windows to look west across Kalamazoo and Kalamazoo Avenue below. "During a sunset," she says, "those buildings all turn pink and orange."

Spoken like an artist. And Eana is. She is a studio member, once manager, of Exquisite Corpse, an artist collaborative and gallery in Park Trades Center, 326 W. Kalamazoo Avenue in Studio 301. The gallery is open to the public by appointment and on the first Friday of every month, during Art Hops, when 300 to 500 people might come through in a matter of hours.

As nearly all space inside the vintage Park Trades Center does, this studio has uneven and scuffed hardwood floors, pipes and ducts that hang from the high ceiling, and windows that show their age.
