About Last Night: Renell Medrano's PELUCA

Last night, Milk Fam Renell Medrano’s PELUCA opened featuring 25 photographs, an interactive installation, and a short film. Spanish for ‘wig’, this exhibition highlights the empowering qualities wigs have continued to have within Medrano’s community while featuring her portraits that expose the vulnerability and beauty of her subjects.

In the spirit of celebrating the transformative power of these hairpieces, an installation of yellow, gold, and rouge strands of hair surrounded a pop-up salon that was placed at the heart of the gallery.  A staggering number of artists and creatives gathered to view Medrano’s work alongside special performances by Ian Isiah and A$AP FergBella HadidKendall Jenner and Princess Nokia also offered their support in attendance.

The exhibition will be up until September 15th from 10am-6pm at Milk Gallery; don’t miss the opportunity to check out her  work (and snag some PELUCA merch before it sells out!)
