RETURN OF THE HAIRY WHO

“Neither a movement nor a style, Hairy Who was simply the name six Chicago artists chose when they decided that the best way to find success as individuals was to join forces and exhibit together.

“In 1966, Jim Falconer, Art Green, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, Suellen Rocca, and Karl Wirsum—all recent graduates of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago—began mounting, as the Hairy Who, unconventional displays of bright, bold graphic work at the Hyde Park Art Center. Over a period of four years, they transformed the art landscape of Chicago, injecting their new and unique voices into the city’s rising national and international profile.”*

The first comprehensive Hairy Who exhibition is now on view at the Art Institute.

HAIRY WHO? 1966–1969*
