The Justice


Friday, October 24 - Tuesday, December 16

Opening Reception | Friday, October 24, 5-8 pm

Leeza Meksin

Brooklyn-based artist Leeza Meksin will present a site-specific installation and a display of 3-dimensional paintings. Using spandex as her primary material, she explores its expressive, elastic, and mutable application to rigid architectural structures. Meksin's interest in the relationship between buildings, bodies and paintings drives her work, with the spandex acting as a membrane that willfully exposes what it might conceal.

For the outdoor component of her site-specific installation, Meksin will dress the exterior of the WSRC building in a spandex piece that stretches across our thirty-two foot tall building. Viewable from South Street and the Brandeis train station, the WSRC gets a new look and makes a bold and colorful statement.
