MMAA is pleased to present three exhibits that contextualize the art of the late Barbara Aubin, a well-known Chicago artist, teacher, & formerly active founding member of the Chicago Chapter of the Women’s Caucus of Art. “Barbara Aubin: Hidden Messages”, opens Friday, December 9, 2016, and continues through Sunday, February 26, 2017 The second exhibit of, “Works on Paper by Chicago Imagists”, shows the internationally recognized efforts of the “Hairy Who” (& other artists) and demonstrates the influences of Surrealism, Outsider Art, and figuration. The third exhibit mounted from the MMAA Permanent Collection helps to place Aubin in context with the growing roster of important women artists of the 20th Century. These exhibits could stand alone but collectively present a much larger national view of 20th Century concepts in art.
