The Figure, Humor and the Chicago Imagists

Sunday December 16, 2018

The Figure, Humor and the Chicago Imagists is a full-day symposium that explores works by the Chicago Imagists and their relationship to the tradition of American figurative art with specific emphasis on the ways in which the Imagists used humor in their depictions of the figure.

The symposium features presentations on the topic and the opportunity to view the extraordinary Elmhurst College Imagist Art Collection on view at the Elmhurst Art Museum.

The event features an introduction by original Hairy Who member and curator of the Elmhurst College Art Collection Suellen Rocca and a presentation by writer and curator Dan Nadel, who recently organized What Nerve! Alternative Figures in American Art, 1960 to the Present. The viewing of the collection will be followed by a panel discussion with participants to be announced.

Symposium is free, but registration is required.
