Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists
2 – 4 pm, Metcalf Auditorium
Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists is a lavishly illustrated romp through Chicago Imagist art that looks at the Second City scene that challenged Pop Art’s status quo in the 1960s, then faded from view. Forty years later, its funk and grit inspire artists from Jeff Koons to Chris Ware, making the Imagists the most famous artists you never knew. (2013, 109 min.)
Free. Screened in conjunction with the exhibition What Nerve! Alternative Figures in American Art, 1960 to the Present.
This film will also be shown on Sunday, October 12.
