Kate Levant: Inhuman Indifference and Sanford Biggers: Ago / Monique Meloche Gallery, Chicago

Inhuman Indifference at Moniquemeloche Gallery in Chicago is artist Kate Levant’s first exhibition in her hometown. The exhibition features a body of work that is comprised of the artist’s latest material investigations into the functioning of objects and their properties.

Kate Levant was born in 1983 in Chicago, IL. The artist currently lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Levant is currently in her second year as artist-in-residence at the Rijksakademie. Her work was featured in the 2012 Whitney Biennial and included in other group exhibitions at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe (upcoming); The Island, organized by LAND /OHWOW Flagler Memorial Island, Miami; St. Joost Akademie, the Netherlands; Center for Creative Studies, Detroit; and Frontroom Gallery, Cleveland to name a few. Levant earned a BFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and an MFA at Yale University School of Art where she received the Susan H. Whedon Award in 2010.

For his first exhibition with Moniquemeloche, Sanford Biggers activated the street-level storefront “on the wall” project space with a site-specific installation titled Ago emerging from his recent work with civil war-era and pre-1900 quilts.
