This much is true. Today is the 12th Day of Christmas, so Christmas is over. We’ll miss our daily gift exchanges, but we’ve learned so much about the 12 artists whose works were shared. Two of those 12 visiting artists to the Tamarind Institute inspired our lithography exchange idea: Cave and Celaya. “Untitled” by Nick Cave was the art of the week for the first five days, and that makes “Untitled” by Enrique Martínez Celaya, the art of these final seven days of Christmas week.
Exquisite Corpse is a suite of eighteen lithographs drawn by visiting artists over fifteen years.
