Whoville Exhibition Art Green - Disclosing Enclosure

This collection of artwork is part of an exhibition from noted contemporary collector, Beth Rudin DeWoody, curated by Laura Dvorkin in collaboration with Circa 1881Whoville, coincides with EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, and is available through October 23rd. 

Art Green was a key member of the Chicago-based "Hairy Who," a group of fivegraduates from the Art Institute of Chicago that was exhibited together at the Hyde Park Art Center in the 1960s. This group famously challenged popular taste by producing abstract imagery. Like the surrealists, they were interested in the stranger and darker aspects of the human mind.  

Green's work was greatly influenced by the artists and teachers he met during his time there.  His work is also greatly influenced by Chicago in the 1960’s —a time and place of great contrasts and competing ideas. His complex paintings are surrealist in nature and include both futuristic and historical imagery. Green’s 1968 Disclosing Enclosure is one of the most significant works from this period.
