The Beasting

The Beasting is an exquisite corpse-making challenge featuring blind collaborations by artists of many styles, ages, experiences & backgrounds. Two dozen artists are invited to create one of four beastly body parts at 44 Gaukel using limited time, materials & instructions. The awesome result features time lapse videos of 24 artists’ pieces & some fabulous full-beast combos, plus an incredible interactive display called The Beastagon (scroll down to see it). 


The Beasting’s second round of 24 artists created artworks of heads, shoulders, pelvises & feet without seeing what anyone else was drawing inside a 44 Gaukel studio in spring 2022.

Their 24 fabulous beast pieces fit together to make even more strange & incredible combos.
