Kippy Stroud Artist Residency Public Lecture
The inaugural guests of the College of the Atlantic Kippy Stroud Artist-in-Residence Program will screen their video work and talk about their artistic process at the first College of the Atlantic Human Ecology Forum of the Fall 2019 term. Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley combine painting, performance, and a distinctive wordplay-rich poetry in their polemical, graphically stylized videos. Their work has been shown in solo exhibitions at Tate Liverpool, the Baltimore Museum of Art, The High Line, Kunsthalle Bremen, the Hammer Museum, the ICA Boston, and SITE Santa Fe. Mary and Patrick will screen “In the Body of the Sturgeon” (2017), which premiered at Tate Liverpool. For the entire month of September the pair will occupy the COA Ethel H. Blum Gallery with the tools and activities of their art making.
