Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists

Directed by Leslie Buchbinder. Text by Robert Storr.

In the mid 1960s, Chicago was an incubator for an iconoclastic group of artists collectively known as the Imagists. A cousin to the contemporaneous phenomenon of Pop art, Chicago Imagism took its own weird, wondrous, in-your-face approach. The Imagist artists--including Roger Brown, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, Ed Paschke, Christina Ramberg and Karl Wirsum--each had his or her own unmistakable style: scatological, meticulous, comical and absurd. Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists is the first film to tell the Imagists' whole story, from their notoriety in the 1960s to their 21st-century resurgence in popularity. Almost 50 years after their first show, the Imagists have influenced generations of artists, from Jeff Koons to Chris Ware. With a wealth of archival footage and photographs, the film also includes over 40 interviews with critics, curators, collectors, artists and the Imagists themselves.

Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists

Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists

In the mid 1960s, while seemingly all the world was focused on New York Pop, a small, fearless group of Chicago artists—including Roger Brown, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, Ed Paschke, Christina Ramberg and Karl Wirsum—went rogue, producing exuberantly irreverent works that were surreal, ephemeral, comical, weirdly erotic and very often collaborative. Pentimenti Productions' feature-length documentary film, Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists (directed by Leslie Buchbinder) has been released as a limited first edition of 1000 (500 on DVD, 500 for Blu-ray) designed by the noted Chicago design team, Sonnenzimmer. Edition includes two flipbooks, one out of three collectible Risograph posters and an essay by Robert Storr. continue to blog
