August 26–October 28, 2012 (exhibition opening party August 25) in the Grand Gallery
This humorous and sometimes manic work was produced by a group of idiosyncratic artists affiliated with the Art Institute of Chicago in the 1960s and 70s. Chicago Imagism is characterized by punning titles, high-key color, and references to comic books and advertising. The exhibition is drawn from the extensive collection of the Krannert Art Museum in Illinois.
