DESCRIPTION

MCA Curator Lynne Warren leads a gallery tour of the exhibition, Jim Nutt: Coming Into Character, on view through May 29, 2011. Since 1990, Jim Nutt has focused exclusively on female heads, in spare line drawings and richly detailed paintings. This exhibition is a retrospective of Nutt's work that emphasizes the development of these important paintings through their precedents in his own work. Nutt’s history as an important artist dates to the mid-1960s where in Chicago he was a chief instigator of the “Hairy Who” group, now better known as the Imagists.
