Chicago Imagism

High Voltage: The Eccentric World of the Chicago Imagists

August 26–October 28, 2012 (exhibition opening party August 25) in the Grand Gallery

works from Chicago Imagism showThis 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.
