Daniel Manning Pope Jr. is a multidisciplinary artist whose art critiques the working apparatuses, hierarchies, systems, and visual culture of late-stage neoliberal capital and fascism through photography, new media, installation, and sculptural work. Pope has exhibited work across the United States, including the 5 & J Gallery in Lubbock, Texas; Las Laguna Art Gallery, Laguna Beach, Calif.; Stola Contemporary Gallery, Chicago, Ill.; and at Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas, the University of North Texas, Denton, Texas, and Austin College, Austin, Texas.

Daniel has worked as a photographer for the University of North Texas’ “NT Daily” and for several grassroots organizing campaigns, such as the Bedrooms are for People initiative in Boulder, Colo., during the summer and fall of 2020, and as a fellow, at both the Charles Adams Studio Project and Louis Hopkins Center for the Arts, both in Lubbock, Texas.
