> DESCRIPTION

The term “icon” originated in relation to painted wooden panels found in Greek Orthodox places of worship. It has since come to suggest any image that is a “stand-in” for the celebrity, cultural importance, place marker, or notoriety of what is pictured—an emblem. Artworks by David Bates, Manolo Valdés, and Andy Warhol, among others are featured in the exhibition, culled from the Kemper Museum’s permanent collection.
