Group Exhibition

Exquisite Mummies

Anglim/Trimble is pleased to present our latest group exhibition Exquisite Mummies.

 In 1992, Isabelle Sorrell made a series of intaglio prints: they were marks, forms or images waiting for a second or even a third “intervention" to complete them. Initially, Sorrell suggested that her husband Paul Kos do a call and response to prints, but the timing was not right.

In the Spring of 2023, after seeing a collaboration painting by William Allan, Robert Hudson and William Wylie at the di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art, Sorrell had the idea to revisit the prints. With the cloud of recent isolation still on the horizon, a call for a playful collaboration seemed appropriate. She invited local artists to each respond to five of the prints. Some are monoprints, and most are from an edition of 10, making repetition and overlap part of the composition.

Paul Kos, who had by now assented to the idea, completed what amounts to a third response and in total contributed a more complex response.

Sorrell named the project Exquisite Mummies for the way it echoes Exquisite Corpse, the parlor game of blind collaborations first played by the French surrealists. But the phrase also encapsulates the journey from the original ‘mommy’ of the works to ‘the mummy’ who is dug up like an old pharaoh, waiting to be re-animated by a circle of shamanistic friends.

Collaborators for Exquisite Mummies include Léonie Guyer, Prajakti Jayavant, Howard Junker, Paul Kos, Chip Lord, Cheryl Meeker, Kal Spelletich, Amy Trachtenberg and Stephen Vincent.


Please join us for a reception on Saturday, August 3rd from 4-6 pm in our second-floor gallery at Minnesota Street Project.

Exquisite Mummies is on view through Saturday, August 17.
