Since 1978, Pope.L has engaged in more than 30 individual and collective crawling pieces across the United States and beyond. On the occasion of the exhibition member: Pope.L, 1978–2001, he has developed a new crawl piece entitled Dressing Up for Civil Rights.
Consisting of four individual crawlers and two pursuers enacting the role of police officers, Dressing Up for Civil Rights is a moving tableau that merges choreographed sound and physical action. Over a period ranging from one-and-a-half to three hours, the tableau will move slowly along a predetermined route throughout the Museum. Each of the crawlers is assigned a role that dictates a tension between the four crawlers and the pursuers.
