THE IRA H. & SUSAN P. THOMSEN FAMILY GALLERY
The Contemporary Dayton presents Night Kitchen, new works by painter-filmmaker partners, Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley, centered around their film, I’m Jackson Pollock. This installation also includes their sculptural, multimedia works that explore the mechanics of power and its fallibility.
The monologue-based film has at its center the verbose character embodiment of societal power who unflinchingly hurls arrogant claims in metered, rhyming verse. Populated with props, sculptures, and projections that saturate a gray universe created by the artists, questions the inherent tyrannies of leadership and its effect on the world we share and navigate daily, often in ways that are beyond our control.
