Home has played a pivotal role in Monique Meloche’s career—it is where the Chicagoan hosted her first exhibition, “Homewrecker,” in 2000. Since then, her eponymous gallery has become internationally renowned for nurturing a diverse roster of artists, Amy Sherald and Rashid Johnson among them. And earlier this year, Meloche was named an honoree of the Chicago Artists Coalition for her work promoting local talent.
Between staging exhibitions and participating in Art Basel Miami Beach, she and her husband and business partner Evan Boris always make time for “Chrismukkuh” with family and friends, including the gallery’s artists. Ahead of the holidays, we caught up with Meloche to see how she celebrates.
