"Meckseper‘s work engages leftist theories and politics in a consumerist reality. Specifically, she examines the semantics of media propaganda as well as capitalist sales and advertising strategies. Curated by Cynthia Woods Mitchell Curatorial Fellow Rachel Hooper, the exhibition contains Meckseper’s documentary photographs of antiwar protests; her signature mannequin and product display installations; two videos; and a new installation created on site — a replication of the stage sets used during U.S. presidential television debates."
