The Figure and the Chicago Imagists: Selections from the Elmhurst College Art Collection

Sat 8 Sep 2018 - Sun 13 Jan 2019

This exhibition features the Elmhurst College Art Collection, focused on artists working in Chicago between about 1950 and the present.

The Chicago Imagists cast the figure in numerous roles, distorting and layering it with metaphor and personal meaning. Outrageous, irreverent, humorous and inspired by popular culture, these works reflect highly original expressions of human form. This exhibition features the Elmhurst College Art Collection, focused on artists working in Chicago between about 1950 and the present. The exhibition is curated by Suellen Rocca, an original member of the Hairy Who.

Presented as part of Art Design Chicago.
