CANCELLED

Kelly Large’s multi-disciplinary practice engages with acts of public appearance and the agency attached to ‘being visible’; especially how different registers of visibility and public-ness are entangled with the social relations of art practice and its presentation. In both her artistic and curatorial practices she explores these ideas through producing and commissioning live work that uses forms of social choreography to reconsider the relationship between individual and collective agency. In her talk she will discuss the complexities of commissioning live and site specific works in public and private contexts.

Kelly currently works as an independent curator; and as a tutor on the Curating Contemporary Art programme at the Royal College of Art. Between 2013–2016 she was Curator: Public Programme at Zabludowicz Collection, where she produced performances by Helen Benigson, Martin Creed, Alexandre da Cunha, Andy Holden, Raúl de Nieves, Jack Tan and Katrina Palmer; and worked with Rachel Maclean, Heather Phillipson, Jon Rafman and Ryan Trecartin amongst others. Recent projects include Empathy Flows, an evening of spoken word exploring the promotion and consumption of emotion with newly commissioned work by artists and poets; and Fictions Are Realities To Come, a series of new performances intersecting real and virtual worlds.

Her work has been presented at Tate Modern, David Roberts Art Foundation, 52nd Venice Biennale, Eastside Projects, Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art, and MIMA.
