Interdisciplinary artist Cheryl Pope will be conducting a series of three performances at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, starting this February. As part of her ongoing “Just Yell” body of work, these performances explore how we grieve and remember the many Chicago youths who have lost their lives to gun violence. Says the museum:
“Her project, Silence the Silence, mourns them through a memorial parade and series of performances throughout the museum. Join in the music and dance as Pope collaborates with students from the Chicago High School for the Arts (ChiArts) to produce this special event. These projects are presented as part of RISK: Empathy, Art, and Social Practice, a concurrent exhibition at Columbia College’s Glass Curtain Gallery.”
Her performances will take place on February 18 (“Silence the Silence”), March 25 (“Walk with Me”), and April 22 (“Bring in the Light”). All performances are free to attend with museum admission. For more information, please visit the museum page dedicated to these events.
