People who have saved this event:


Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists is the first film to tell the wild, woolly, utterly irreverent story of the Chicago Imagists.


Over forty interviews with the artists and a prominent group of critics, curators, collectors, and contemporary artists are featured, intertwined with a wealth of re-discovered archival footage and photographs. It brings to life the milieu of Chicago in the 1960s, and also showcases the legacy of the Imagists’ work in contemporary art production today. Themes in the narrative include the Imagists’ emergence within the national context of Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, the rise and fall of taste within art history, and the uncharacteristic equality afforded to women artists among this Chicago group.

Duration: 104 mins
Director: Leslie Buchbinder, Pentimenti Productions
