Mary Kelly: Selected Works | Falk Visiting Artist
SEP 28 - DEC 8, 2019
1st Floor: The Leah Louise B. Tannenbaum and Louise D. and Herbert S. Falk, Sr. Galleries

Mary Kelly, Study for How to use the bomb shelter as a table, 2012, compressed lint, version 3, 15 x 23 in. Collection of Susanne and Jost Vielmetter, Altadena, CA.
Over four decades of her practice, Mary Kelly has addressed issues relating to the body, systems of classification and power, and memory. In the early 1970s, she began to bring art and politics together; her projects reference iconic representations from the historical past and have been informed by World War II in London, the Vietnam War protests, and the Women’s Liberation Movement.

Based in Los Angeles, Kelly blends personal and political issues of gender, identity, and collective memory, and both her art and writings have been central to discussions of Conceptual art, postmodernism, and feminism since the 1970s. Her work has received ongoing attention in solo exhibitions around the world and been included in such seminal group exhibitions as Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution (MOCA, Los Angeles) and Women and Work (The Tate Modern, London).

This exhibition is organized by Nancy Doll. The show is presented in collaboration with UNCG's School of Art as part of the Falk Visiting Artist program.
