The Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) presents together for the first time, two new chapters in Meleko Mokgosi’s Democratic Intuition project. Lex and Love were conceived specifically for WCMA’s 5,500 square foot galleries. Mokgosi (Botswana, b. 1981), is known for his monumental installations of exquisitely-rendered large-scale paintings. Democratic Intuition, the most recent of Mokgosi’s multi-chapter projects, considers the slippery concept of democracy as an idea that is inscribed in individuals through institutions, ideology, and culture. Lex and Love are the third and fourth chapters in the project that asks how one can approach ideas of the democratic in relation to the daily-lived experiences of people living in southern Africa.
