moniquemeloche presents... is an exhibition showcasing artists represented by Monique Meloche Gallery in Chicago.

Monique Meloche founded her gallery in Chicago’s West Loop in 2001 with an international roster of emerging artists working in all media. Their program has been diverse and inclusive since its inception, and they continue to be a trailblazer for artistic talents early or under-recognized in their careers. Taking a curatorial approach honed after Meloche’s six years at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Meloche presents conceptually challenging programming in Chicago and at art fairs internationally with an emphasis on institutional outreach.  The gallery’s focus is on discovering and fostering emerging artists – bringing them to the attention of collectors, curators, institutions and global audiences.   

“She has a real dedication to showing a very diverse program, especially an ethnically diverse program,” said Michael Darling, chief curator of Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
