Margaret Meehan: Sculpture Magazine

December 9, 2019 by Kay Whitney

Conduit Gallery-Dallas, Texas

We like to imagine that the arc of history follows some kind of trajectory, like a book or a movie. Artists like Margaret Meehan, however, recognize that there is no clear chain of events, that history is illogical, directionless, and unpredictable. “Hope is the Thing with Feathers,” her recent exhibition, interrogated the iterations of contemporary feminist protest by examining it as an unstable cycle that moves forward and regresses over time. Meehan’s works mine contradictions, emphasizing the precarious nature of cultures and social structures. Full review here.

Tuesday Evenings at the Modern Lecture

On Tuesday October 10th at 7pm Margaret Meehan presents “Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde,” a talk on how her work addresses monstrosity as a kind of otherness that goes beyond dualities and instead exists in shades of gray, a slippage between the categories that society defines us by and an acknowledgement of the monster that lives within us. In this clear-eyed and nuanced consideration of the intersections of myths, monsters, and miracles, Meehan examines how we decide whom we protect and whom we should be protected from by looking at notions of gender, vintage horror, and our own blood-stained American history.
