“Mary Kelly: To Witness the Future” Opening Reception
Celebrate the opening of the exhibition “Mary Kelly: To Witness the Future!” Enjoy food and beverages while seeing the work of pioneering and influential feminist artist Mary Kelly (American b. 1941, lives Los Angeles, CA). The Opening Reception will also feature live performance art. Mary Kelly is best known for her 1970s conceptual art installations. “Mary Kelly: To Witness The Future” is the first exhibition to specifically explore her long engagement with activist movements. On view will be works made from 2005 to the present, including lint “paintings,” light box photographs, video art, and a live “happening.” The works all reference women’s responses to key political issues in the United States and Europe starting in the 1960s and 1970s; these issues have taken on new resonance in light of current political shifts, which may influence the course of our future. This exhibition is supported by Helaine Posner (C ’75).
