Seeing is a Kind of Thinking: A Jim Nutt Companion


Further solidifying Jim Nutt’s stature as an internationally significant artist, Seeing Is a Kind of Thinking: A Jim Nutt Companion provides an excellent opportunity to expand the artistic framework in which to consider his work beyond Chicago’s Hairy Who. While Jim Nutt: Coming Into Character offers a focused look at Nutt’s portrait busts of the last 20 years, revealing precedents in Nutt’s early works, this companion exhibition takes a much broader approach, delving into the rich and varied visual and cultural universe that has informed Nutt’s work and that of his peers.

The MCA’s Pamela Alper Associate Curator Julie Rodrigues Widholm, Paul Nudd, Diane Simpson and Gladys Nilsson provide insight into this companion exhibition to Jim Nutt: Coming Into Character.
