Please join artist Jake Troyli in conversation with curator and writer Danny Dunson on a virtual walkthrough of Troyli’s solo exhibition Don’t Forget to Pack a Lunch! currently on view at Monique Meloche Gallery. Troyli will discuss his dynamic new body of work, aimed at investigating the construction of otherness and the commodification of the black/brown body. This timely evolution of the artist’s practice confronts and explores labor capitalism and sweat equity as a demonstration of value, challenging the erroneous notion that it is only through arduous performances of labor that importance is earned.

Presented with Monique Meloche, Chicago as part of the Chicago Gallery Open
