An exhibition sheds new light on the Chicago recluse’s most provocative images.
On what would be the self-taught artist’s 125th birthday, Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art is holding a daylong celebration formally recognized by the mayor of Chicago.
We love NYC and LA and all the art they have to offer, but we know they’re only two towns of many across the country mounting great exhibitions large and small.
CHICAGO — Large, bright photographs currently fill Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art, printed from Kodachrome slides that date to the 1950s and ’60s. The photographs were curated by artist Jeff Phillips but feature subjects unrelated to him — he stumbled upon the slides in 2011 at a second-hand store in St. Louis.
