ArtBeat: Mary Reid Kelley @ UAlbany Art Museum, 10/7/14
The exhibition features three recent high definition videos — “You Make Me Iliad” (2010), “The Syphilis of Sisyphus” (2011) and “Priapus Agonistes” (2013) — and also reveals Kelley’s inventive process which fuses live performance, drawing, sculpture, costume design and digital media.
It is the first museum exhibition devoted to the finely crafted and researched costumes, objects and drawings that Kelley creates for the videos that she films in collaboration with Patrick Kelley.
At 7pm on Tuesday (October 7), the University Art Museum will host an artist talk by Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley. The talk will also feature the U.S. debut screening of their new video, “Swinburne’s Pasiphae.” Admission is free.
