In honor of you, our idols, Smack Mellon is pleased to present Idol Worship, a group exhibition celebrating the ongoing cultural, social, and political significance of role model adoration as an essential survival strategy. In particular, self identified women are often overlooked as figures to be emulated, exempt from the label of “genius” so readily bestowed upon men. Curated by Emily Colucci, the exhibition brings together 27 artists in diverse disciplines that are engaging with and fawning over their women and women-identifying idols.

With: Rebecca Baldwin, Loren Britton, Anna Campbell, Liz Collins, Alexandria Deters, Jamison Edgar, Jason Elizondo, Cara Erskine, Caroline Garcia, Patty Gone, Kris Grey, Tatyana Gubash, Michelle Handelman, Tenaya Izu, Aaron Krach, Phoenix Lindsey-Hall, Emily Lombardo, Helina Metaferia, Sophia Narrett, Jennifer Quinones, Brice Peterson, Gwen Shockey, Pacifico Silano, Anna Skarbek, Tiffany Smith, Ariella Tai, and Conrad Ventur.
