Jul 20th 2021

Join 21c Museum Hotel Chicago for an in-person “Curator Conversation” featuring 21c Museum Manager Adia Sykes and hip-hop cross-stitcher Emma McKee on Tuesday, July 20 at 6 p.m.

21c’s Curator Conversations is a monthly series that asks a local art curator to chat with an artist of their choice with ties to the Chicago arts community. Working under the pseudonym Stitch Gawd, McKee is a non-traditional cross-stitcher and is known within Chicago’s rap community as “the only hip-hop cross-stitcher.” McKee and Sykes will discuss McKee’s recent work featuring a 9-foot-tall portrait of Fred Hampton, former Chairman of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party.

To learn more about Sykes and Mckee, their work, and Chicago’s rich arts community through an in-depth discussion, register for the July 20 event.
