    Women & Their Work is excited to bring California-based installation artist Megan Geckler to Austin for her first exhibition in Texas. Geckler creates large-scale, site-specific installations assembled by stretching thousands of strands of colored flagging tape into the artist’s signature form of optical architecture. In Geckler’s hands, flagging tape—an industrial material normally utilized by surveyors to demarcate space on construction sites—transforms into dazzling, kinetic structures that mimic the cool, slick look of advertisements, haute fashion backdrops, and high-design products. Her sculptural, translucent plastic designs simulate and reference our idea of the mass-produced space age while camouflaging the intricately handmade quality of the work. Completely site-specific and never duplicated, Geckler’s “drawings in space” flirt with both Op Art and minimalism while retaining a sense of play and delight.
