Jim Nutt – Coming into Character at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago is currently featuring an exhibit that focuses on the work of Jim Nutt. The exhibit is called Coming Into Character and is somewhat of a retrospective, but concentrates largely on his later work, which consists of portraits of imaginary women he’s been painting since the 90’s.  Guess this one’s been up for a couple of months now, but it’ll stay up through May 29th. Jim Nutt is most known for his involvement and association with the Hairy Who and is grouped into the Chicago Imagists. This will be running alongside a companion exhibit which will feature work by artists who influenced or were influenced by Jim Nutt. This companion exhibit is entitled Seeing Is a Kind of Thinking: A Jim Nutt Companion and will come down the same time as Coming Into Character.
