Mary Reid Kelley's visually rich and intellectually stimulating video art converses with history. Fusing techniques of live performance and stop-motion animation, Reid Kelley creates poignant characters who declaim in droll verse, blending Homer and Cindy Sherman. "Mary Reid Kelley: Working Objects and Videos" will be the first museum exhibition devoted to the finely crafted and researched costumes, objects, and drawings that Reid Kelley creates for her videos, in collaboration with Patrick Kelley. These working objects reveal Reid Kelley as a master of the contemporary impulse to work across and synthesize art media.
