David Kelley
Assistant Professor of Art

Artist doing work at the intersection of photography, performance, video, and critical studies.


I am involved in ongoing research regarding the space of performance in the production of documentary and structural photography and film. In particular, the production of sites and artifacts of such rehearsals and productions.

As a teacher, I am committed to experiential learning and a critical engagement with visual culture. I teach art practice, critical theory and poetry as intra-dependent disciplines.

My further interests include collectives, progressive social movements, experimental anthropology and historic avant-gardes.
