Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Chicago
January 29–May 29, 2011
Known for his fantastical invention, biting wit, and distorted figuration, renowned American painter Jim Nutt has focused on portraits of female heads for the past two decades. These imaginary portraits are similar in some ways, yet each is distinctly individual. Jim Nutt: Coming Into Character is a retrospective that emphasizes the development of these important paintings through their precedents in his own work, on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Chicago, from January 29 to May 29, 2011.
