Mike Kelley Single Channel Videos

Mike Kelley:

Single Channel Videos 

“One of the most influential artists of the past quarter century and a pungent commentator on American class, popular culture and youthful rebellion.” – The New York Times

When Mike Kelley passed away in 2012, he left the legacy of a body of deeply innovative work mining American popular culture and both modernist and alternative traditions. This screening features a selection of Kelley’s videos, from the sassy/melancholy Superman Recites Selections from 'The Bell Jar' and Other Works by Sylvia Plath (1999) to the threatening histrionics of Extracurricular Activity Projective Reconstruction #1 (Domestic Scene) (2000), as well as collaborative pieces, such as his minimalist exploration of sado-masochistic relationships in 100 Reasons (1991) – among others. 

Special thanks to the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts and Electronic Arts Intermix.

The Jack H. Skirball Series is curated by Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud.
