The DePaul Art Museum will exp lore work by contemporary artists who draw inspiration from an earlier gene ration of Chicago artists known as Imagists in “Afterimage\,” which opens S ept. 14. Free and open to the public\, the exhibition runs through Nov. 18.

\n

An opening reception for the exhibit ions will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 14 at the museum\, located at 9 35 W. Fullerton Ave.\, just east of the CTA’s Fullerton “L” stop.

\n

Emerging in the 1970s\, Imagist artists favore d flamboyant subject matter and an inventive\, comics-infused narrative sty le that distinguished them from the prevailing modes of abstraction and Pop art. Imagism remains a strong aesthetic influence in the work by the 24 yo ung artists in this exhibition. They utilize various themes and techniques from Imagism\, including the strong color palette\, pop-culture references and brash humor. But as the range and diversity of works clearly demonstrat e\, these contemporary artists have moved beyond Imagism in both visual and ideological ways.

\n

“This exhibition i s about sources and influences and also about generation—both in the sense of bringing into being and that of age\, cohorts and lifespans\,” said Loui se Lincoln\, director of the DePaul Art Museum. “The contemporary artists w hose work forms the core of the show are young\, and their work manifests a fitting sense of exuberance and experimentation.”

\n

The Afterimage project was conceived and organized by Thea Li berty Nichols and Dahlia Tulett-Gross\, independent curators whose research interests in the history of Imagism have provided a foundation for their e xploration of its more contemporary approaches and iterations. The exhibiti on features the work of 24 artists\, including Lilli Carré\, David Leggett\ , Amy Lockhart\, Ellen Nielsen\, Anders Oinonen\, John Parot as well as pie ces by Imagist artists such as Roger Brown\, Jim Nutt\, Ed Paschke and Chri stina Ramberg.

\n

A series of programs a nd performances are scheduled\, and related exhibitions will take place con currently at the Roger Brown Study Collection\, the Center for Book and Pap er Arts and theJoan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection.

\n

The Afterimage and Ellen Lanyon exhibitions mark the beginn ing of the DePaul Art Museum’s second year in its new $7.8 million home\, w hich opened in September 2011.
