3-D Doings: The Imagist Object In Chicago Art, 1964–1980

Oct 25, 2018

The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College is having a two-day 3-D Doings Symposium October 25-26 in conjunction with the acclaimed exhibition “3-D Doings: The Imagist Object in Chicago Art, 1964–1980.”

“3-D Doings,” which runs through January 6, is the first in-depth exploration of the little-known sculptural work and dimensional painting made by the Chicago Imagists during the early years of their practice. The symposium features a dialogue with Art Green and Flip Philips on October 25, and, on October 26, a gallery talk with artists Sarah Canright, Art Green, Mimi Gross, Lorri Gunn, Phil Hanson, Gladys Nilsson, and Suellen Rocca, a reception, and a panel discussion .

“3-D Doings” is organized by The Tang’s Ian Berry and Chicago-based curators and scholars John Corbett and Jim Dempsey.
