Quick Facts
Statement

Brennan Gerard and Ryan Kelly have collaborated since 2003.  Working within an interdisciplinary framework to create project-based installations and performances, Gerard & Kelly use choreography, writing and a range of other media to address questions of sexuality, collective memory, and the formation of queer consciousness.  Gerard & Kelly completed the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in 2010 and received their MFAs in 2013 from UCLA.  Their first solo exhibition was held at Kate Werble Gallery in New York in 2013.  This spring, The Kitchen presented their most recent exhibition, Timelining, praised by The New York Times as “the high point of the Chelsea season.”  Recent group exhibitions include LACE, Los Angeles, CA (2013); and CCS Bard Center for Curatorial Studies, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY (2012); performances have been presented in New York by Danspace Project at St. Marks Church and Park Avenue Armory. In 2014 their work is supported by fellowships from the Graham Foundation and Art Matters and a residency at Pioneer Work Center for Art & Innovation.  They have been selected as one of 35 artists/collaboratives included in the upcoming Made in L.A. 2014 biennial at the Hammer Museum.
