MCA Screen: Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists
In the mid 1960s, the city of Chicago was an incubator for an iconoclastic group of young artists. Collectively known as the Imagists, they showed in successive waves of exhibitions with monikers that might have been psychedelic rock bands of the era – Hairy Who, Nonplussed Some, False Image, Marriage Chicago Style. Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists is the first film to tell this wild, woolly, utterly irreverent tale. The Chicago premiere of Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists, is followed by a discussion with artists Gladys Nilsson and Art Green, director Leslie Buchbinder, writer John Corbett, and MCA curator Lynne Warren.
