    This publication was published in conjunction with the MoCP exhibition Petcoke: Tracing Dirty Energy (June 21 – October 29, 2016), created in partnership with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Southeast Environmental Task Force (SETF) and organized by Natasha Egan, MoCP Executive Director and Karen Irvine, MoCP Curator and Associate Director. The publication features essays by art critic and cultural theorist Brian Homes, director of the NRDC’s Midwest Program Henry L. Henderson, and community organizers and activists Olga Bautista and Alberto I. Ricon, both leaders in the Southeast Side Coalition to Ban Petcoke. Petcoke: Tracing: Dirty Energy features MoCP commissioned works by artists in response to the environmental and public health impact of petcoke, a dust-like waste product containing carbon, toxic heavy metals, and other dangerous compounds resulting from oil refining processes in the Chicago region and beyond.
