About the speaker

Cheryl Pope is a visual artist focused in sculpture, installation, and performance. Her work questions and responds to issues of identity as it relates to the individual and the community, specifically in regards to race, gender, class, history, power and place. Her practice emerges from the act and politics of listening.

Pope received her BFA and MD from the School of the Art Institute Chicago, where she is now a full-time Professor in the Fashion Department. She shows nationally and internationally and is represented by Monique Meloche Gallery in Chicago and Galleria Bianconi in Milan.
