CHICAGO—The DePaul University Art Museum opens a solo exhibition of 1960s–1980s work by Dominick Di Meo this week.

DiMeo was a member of the so-called Monster Roster—Chicago artists who in the mid-twentieth century developed a distinct approach to the human figure: disarticulated and often terrifying. Even as he has come to inspire subsequent generations of artists, his work—paintings, prints, and collages—remains fresh and ferocious.

The exhibition runs from July 11 – September 1, 2013. More information can be found on the DePaul Art Museum‘s website.
