Megan Geckler: "No Chance To Move Backward And See" - Installation Views
Megan Geckler creates site-specific installations using construction flagging tape, mathematical calculations, and color theory. Geckler’s installation at UMOCA, “No chance to move backwards and see”, transforms the gallery space, inviting the viewer to take an exploratory journey through chromatic examples of architecture, design, sculpture, and painting. Drawing from geometric illusionism and principles of design, “No chance to move backwards and see” presents woven wall murals, a custom sculptural extension of architectural elements, several modular sculptural works, and nine tape ‘paintings’ that offer a Josef Albers-esque color study of the colors of the installation. On Display in the Street Level Gallery.

Modeled after a dynamic program developed by the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, Not Just Another Pretty Face encourages a new, diverse group of people to envision themselves as patrons of contemporary art, while cultivating lasting relationships between artists and patrons. As part of the NJPAF program, patrons can meet artists, visit their studios, follow their careers and garner inspiration from their creative insights, ideas and art-making processes. It is through this personal relationship that Not Just Another Pretty Face encourages active and enthusiastic patronage. Artists who received commissions worked collaboratively with patrons. While the program title, Not Just Another Pretty Face, implies portraiture as the primary subject, artists and patrons were encouraged to consider traditional representation as well as artworks that push past conventional forms. And in this project, participants created new relationships that required both artists and patrons to consider how art could become a personal and shared vision. Exhibition held in the Street Gallery space.
