Figurism: Narrative and Fantastic Figurative Art from the Illinois State Museum Collection - ISM Lockport Gallery

  Figurism: Narrative and Fantastic Figurative Art from the Illinois State Museum Collection   

Figurism: Narrative and Fantastic Figurative Art from the Illinois State Museum Collection

This exhibition brings together historical and contemporary artwork of more than fifty artists that emphasizes the power and the range of the narrative and expressive figure in Midwest art. Rather than attempting to define a regional figurative tradition, the exhibition shows how ‘figurism’ has endured and evolved into pluralistic, eclectic, and highly individualized expressions.  Organized by Doug Stapleton, Assistant Curator, ISM Chicago Gallery. Presented during ISM Lockport Gallery’s 25th Anniversary year.

Exhibition runs from October 30, 2012 through April 19, 2013.
