Mary Reid Kelley works in collaboration with her husband Patrick Kelley. Language, literature and history inform their work, which combines video, poetry, animation, performance, and painting that are filled with punning wordplay. Reid Kelley presents her take on the clash between utopian ideologies and the realities of women’s lives in the struggle for liberation and through political strife, wars, and other historical events. Their work has been shown widely including at The Rose Art Museum, The Wexner Center for the Arts, The ICA in Philadelphia and SITE Santa Fe Biennial. In 2015, the Hammer Museum will present their complete trilogy of films on the theme of the Minotaur.
