    Mary Reid Kelley, in collaboration with her partner, Patrick Kelley, combines painting, performance, and a distinctive wordplay-rich poetry in her polemical, graphically stylized videos. Performing as a First World War soldier, a grisette in revolutionary Paris, or the Minotaur, she resurrects characters that embody particular facets of ideas in time. Her historically specific tableaux enclose dilemmas of mortality, sex, and estrangement, navigated by the characters in punning dialogue that traps them between tragic and comic meanings.

    Mary Reid Kelley was born in 1979 in Greenville, South Carolina USA. Reid Kelley received her BFA from St. Olaf College, Minnesota, and an MFA in Painting from Yale University in 2009. In 2013 the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston held the first solo museum exhibition of Reid Kelley’s work. Forthcoming in November 2017 Tate Liverpool will host a new commission by Reid Kelley which marks her first museum solo exhibition in the UK.
