"This is the story of the artists that emerged from the catalyzing exhibitions at the Hyde Park Art Center from 1966-1973, starting with the Hairy Who, who would come to be known as the Chicago Imagists. It brings to life the milieu of Chicago in the 1960s, and also showcases the legacy of the Imagists' work in contemporary art production today, from Jeff Koons to Chris Ware. Themes in the narrative include the Imagists' emergence within the national context of Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, the rise and fall of taste within art history, and the uncharacteristic equality afforded to women artists among this Chicago group."--Film website (http://pentimentiproductions.org/projects/hairy-who/about).
