Chicago Calling Curators’ Musings

@ Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art

756 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60642

Opening Saturday, June 30th, from 1PM - 2:30PM

On view through Saturday, January 6th

Intuit’s Art Design Chicago exhibition Chicago Calling: Art Against the Flow explores Chicago’s history of robust recognition and acceptance of self-taught art and artists.

Join exhibition co-curators, Kenneth C. Burkhart and Lisa Stone, as they discuss the intrinsic themes embodied in the works of the 10 Chicago artists on view in the exhibit: Henry Darger, William Dawson, Lee Godie, Mr. Imagination, Aldo Piacenza, Pauline Simon, Drossos Skyllas, Dr. Charles Smith, Wesley Willis and Joseph Yoakum. The curators will share their musings on associations among works in the exhibition including expressions of fierce resistance to soul-crushing circumstances, to conventional ideals of beauty, and much in between.
