Platform: Josephine Meckseper
Parrish Art Museum
Acclaimed artist Josephine Meckseper, known for her film, photography, and installations that conflate art objects with commodities, intervenes into the Museum’s architecture and collection with four sculptural works installed in the outdoor gallery, lobby, and permanent collection. Combining materials and signifiers from the worlds of fashion, retail, consumerism, and fine art, Meckseper calls into question the underlying power dynamics that affect and shape prominent aspects of our culture.
Josephine Meckseper’s work has been exhibited worldwide, and is in the permanent collections of Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, and Hammer Museum, UCLA. Her Manhattan Oil Project, commissioned by the Art Production Fund, was installed in a lot adjacent to Times Square in 2012. Meckseper lives in New York and Amagansett.
