Cheryl Pope's project, "A Silent I," opened last night at moniquemeloche gallery in Chicago!
"A Silent I" will be on view until December 31.
Here's what moniquemeloche has to say about her project:
moniquemeloche is pleased to announce the project "A Silent I" by Chicago-based artist Cheryl Pope this Fall/Winter 2011. As an artist-in-residence at Chicago Public School Lindblom Math and Science Academy in 2010, Pope asked the high school students to anonymously submit one truth and one lie about themselves, without designating which was which, as part of a collaborative art project. Of the 125 submitted statements, Pope selected 20 to reproduce in the style of athletic championship banners and installed them in the Lindblom gymnasium for their initial presentation. Addressing complex issues of identity, self-worth, and inter-personal relationships, this celebratory series speaks to all ages, so we invited Pope to make a more public installation "on the wall."
Cheryl Pope: Matter of Fact is currently on view at Dorsch Gallery.
