Ashley Smith is a Philadelphia based artist working in photography, video, and fibers. Through the combination of these mediums, she creates melodramatic depictions of relationships and sexuality. Her work is driven by her desire to understand how feeling rules and gender roles affect our interpersonal relationships and sense of self. 
Smith earned her MFA in Photography, Video & Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in 2015. Her work has been exhibited internationally and throughout the United States at the Delaware Museum of Art (2018), Society for Contemporary Craft (2016), Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (2017), Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco (2017), Pittsburgh Center for the Arts (2016), the Knockdown Center (2017), and the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in Slovakia (2019) among others. She has taught photography at the International Center of Photography, Moore College of Art & Design, the School of Visual Arts, The Village of Arts and Humanities, and in New York City public schools.
