Hairy Who and the Chicago Imagists

Special Screening at the Princess Cinema

In the mid 1960s, the city of Chicago was an incubator for an iconoclastic group of young artists that celebrated a very different version of ‘popular’ from the detached cool of New York, London and Los Angeles. Chicago’s diverse artists followed no trend, preferring a path they ferociously cleared for themselves.
