Artist Cheryl Pope would like viewers to explore her work through the physical space it takes up rather than through language and description. The experience, says Pope, is more about “thinking about understanding through a physicality and through the body, and less about language and listening.”
The concept itself, however, may warrant further explanation. To that end, the Chicago-based Pope will speak tonight at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, as the final guest in an ongoing lecture series about identity presented by the school’s Visiting Scholar, Artist and Designer Program. Pope’s work comes in many forms, including sculpture, installation and performance art. She is also a Golden Gloves champion boxer and trainer, a skill set that she incorporates into her work as an artist, often taking on issues of power, race and gender.
Pope’s lecture, “The Physicality of Space,” starts at 7 p.m. in the Mary Harris Auditorium at RMCAD, 1600 Pierce Street in Lakewood. Anyone can attend, but an RSVP is required at rmcad.edu/rsvp/vsad. For more information, visit rmcad.edu.
