Chicago Surrealist Group

The Chicago Surrealist Group was founded in July, 1966 by Franklin and Penelope Rosemont, after their 1965 trip to Paris in which they met André Breton and attended meetings of the Paris Surrealist Group.

The group played a major role in organizing the 1976 World Surrealist Exhibition in Chicago.

It has published a sporadically-appearing newspaper, WHAT Are You Going To Do About It?.

Among the participants in the group's activities have been Clarence John Laughlin, Gerome Kamrowski and Philip Lamantia.
