Cheryl Pope
Cheryl Pope is a Chicago-based artist focused in sculpture, installation and performance. Her work questions and responds to issues of identity as it relates to the private and public self. For the past four years, her research has been centred on issues of power, inequality, race, gender and segregation in the U.S. This research includes several collaborations with Chicago youth through the intersection of poetry and the visual arts. These collaborations have surfaced as performances and special edition books as well as a team of young poets under the group name Just Yell. In 2015 she was the DCASE Artist in Residence at the Chicago Cultural Center and recently exhibited at the Kunsthalle Osnabrueck (Germany), The Poetry Foundation (IL) and Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (CO). Also, Pope studied under the artist Nick Cave for twelve years and that experience has had a dominant influence on her practice.
