Join us Saturday, December 17th for a gallery talk with artist Cheryl Pope, in conversation with Erin Toale, Curatorial Assistant at Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
Toale will lead an informal discussion of works currently on view in Pope’s second solo exhibition at moniquemeloche, WATCH YOUR STEP, as well as her #onthewall collaboration with the community of Homan Square.
A continuation of her ongoing investigation into gun violence in Chicago and the nation, Pope’s latest body of work moves forward with her interest in spirituality, albeit in a more direct manner. While previous projects such as Just Yell provided a platform for the voices and spirits of the city to rise, the works in WATCH YOUR STEP – comprising sculpture, video, photography, and performance – physically embody these voices, engaging overtly with the spiritual realm to put forth new and necessary modes of healing as a means of civil protest.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
