In partnership with the Chicago Film Archives, Intuit will host a special engagement viewing of American Revolution 2 (1969, Howard Alk, Mike Gray & Film Group) – a gritty but essential documentary charting social turbulence in late 1960′s Chicago. American Revolution 2 includes footage of the 1968 Democratic Convention protest and riot, a critique of the events by working class African-Americans in Chicago, and attempts by the Black Panther Party to organize poor, southern white youths on the city’s north side.

Bill Cottle, a member of the film crew (the Film Group) who shot footage of the 1968 protests and riot, will be on hand to introduce the film and participate in a Q+A following the screening. Directed by Howard Alk and Mike Gray, running time: 89 min. DVD projection.

 

Established in 1991, Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art (Intuit) is the only nonprofit organization in the United States that is dedicated solely to presenting self-taught and outsider art — with world class exhibitions; resources for scholars and students; a Permanent Collection with holdings of more than 1,100 works of art; the Henry Darger Room Collection; the Robert A. Roth Study Center, a non-circulating collection with a primary focus in the fields of outsider and contemporary self-taught art; and educational programming for people of all interest levels and backgrounds.
