Opening Reception // Bearing: object, body, and space

March 01, 2017 at Student Union Galleries | SUGs in Chicago.


Please join us for the opening reception of the SUGs exhibition Bearing: object, body, and space” on Wednesday, March 1 | 4PM-6PM

Bearing: object, body, and space” is a group exhibition exploring ideas of corporeal imposition within the works and research of three artists, Santina Amato (MFA 2017), Lindsay Hutchens (MFA 2017/MAVCS 2018), and Michelle Marie Murphy (MFA 2017). This exhibition incorporates performative video, site-specific objects, photography, painting, and text to reflect on the issues that surround them as women and how they deal with the imposed and internalized threshold of their own bodies within their practices.

Programs that will expand on concepts explored in the exhibition are provided by generous support from the Departments of Photography (SAIC PHOTO), Printmedia (SAIC Printmedia), and Visual and Critical Studies (SAIC Visual Critical Studies), and the Student Support Wellness Group.

Address: 37 S Wabash Ave, Chicago

Gallery Talk with Cheryl Pope

December 17, 2016 at Monique Meloche Gallery in Chicago.


Join us Saturday, December 17th for a gallery talk with artist Cheryl Pope.

Pope will lead an informal discussion of works currently on view in her 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.

North of Dixie: Civil Rights Photography Beyond the South

January 12, 2017 at DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago.


The history of the civil rights movement is commonly illustrated with well-known photograph from Birmingham, Montgomery, and Selma—leaving the visual story of the movement outside the South remaining to be told. In North of Dixie: Civil Rights Photography Beyond the South, author and historian Mark Speltz shines a light past the most iconic photographs of the era to focus on images of everyday activists who led grassroots campaigns to protest racial discrimination in jobs, housing, education, and police brutality. These hard fought battles took place in Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, among many other American cities north of the Mason-Dixon Line.
