Remembering The Society of American Fakirs, 1891-1914

Event Details

Sunday, February 2, 2020
All day
Kohler Art Library, , Conrad A. Elvehjem Building
This exhibit brings together seven parody art exhibition catalogs from the Society of American Fakirs, a group of students from the Art Students League that organized annual art spoof shows. Along with an original Fakir painting, show advertisements and related ephemera also help showcase the distinct early 20th century humor of the Art Students League, offering a rare window into the silly side of art.
