Lubeznik Center for the Arts‘ (LCA) upcoming summer exhibition, moniquemeloche presents…will be on display from June 18 through October 21, 2022. moniquemeloche presents… is an exhibition showcasing artists represented by Monique Meloche Gallery in Chicago.
Diverse and inclusive since its inception in Chicago’s West Loop over 20 years ago, moniquemeloche promotes contemporary artists, aiming to be a trailblazer for artistic talents early or under-recognized in their careers. Working with an international roster of emerging and established artists in all media, the gallery’s focus is on discovering and fostering up-and-coming artists, bringing them to the attention of collectors, curators, institutions and global audiences.
Taking a curatorial approach honed after Meloche’s years at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the gallery presents conceptually challenging installations in Chicago and at art fairs internationally with an emphasis on institutional outreach.
“Not only is moniquemeloche one of the best galleries in the Midwest, but some of the artists in the show are world renowned and can be seen in some of the most important museums and galleries in the world. In addition to Monique being a hit maker, she has showed artists of color since her gallery’s beginning, long before the artworld’s attempt to catch up. It’s time to celebrate her and the artists she represents,” said Lora Fosberg, LCA’s director of exhibitions.
Participating artists in moniquemeloche presents… include Sanford Biggers, Layo Bright, Dan Gunn, Sheree Hovsepian, Rashid Johnson, Kajahl, Ben Murray, Ebony G. Patterson, Karen Reimer, Jake Troyli and Nate Young.
