Not Without a Fight surveys mixed media, video, sculptures and installations by Cheryl Pope that question and respond to issues of identity as it relates to the individual and the community, specifically in regards to race, gender, class, history, power and place. With a background in fashion and boxing, Pope frequently collaborates with young artists from neighborhoods across Chicago. Her projects use unexpected pairings—such as sports with spoken word—to foster dialogue, creating safe spaces for their peers to speak up about tough subjects, including violence and its impact on youth, in order to document the felt experience of a community.
