The Invisible Pink Unicorn, birthed on the whim of early Internet users fed up with religion, gained underground ubiquity as a symbol of atheism. LAS Gallery's The Visible Pink Unicorn exhibit plays with the notion of a different type of cult: the ultra-feminine.
Pieces in this collection echo a certain preciousness found in design these days, as well as a reverence for the childlike. We're not gonna lie -- there's a lot of pink on these walls -- but it reminds us of that corner in our old bedroom, where, beneath a poster of My Little Pony, we spent hours in a kind of worshipful state, lost in worlds of our own making.
The exhibit features the work of Melissa McGurgan, Jacqueline Davis, Mindy Meyers, and Amy Reidell.
