Tulane University’s Newcomb Art Museum presents Hairy Who and The Chicago Imagists (2014) as part of a film series that accompanies its exhibition “A Shared Space: KAWS, Karl Wirsum, and Tomoo Gokita.” The film documents the history of the Chicago Imagists, a group of artists (including Karl Wirsum) who emerged in Chicago in the 1960s, and their legacy in contemporary art today.

This event is free and open to the public and will take place in the Freeman Auditorium in the Woldenberg Art Center at Tulane University. For more information, visit the museum’s website.
