Kelly is an artist, curator and educator. She makes process-based, live projects that engage performance and social choreography to critically explore the relationship between individual and collective agency.
Her practice involves developing slow, long-term relationships with organisations involved in cultural work such as art collections, libraries, schools and universities.
She has worked within curatorial, education and public programmes at Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool and New Art Gallery Walsall as well as directing SUNDAY, an international art fair for young commercial galleries, held in London. In her independent practice she has made projects with organisations including Tate Modern, Venice Biennale, Eastside Projects, Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art, and MIMA. Kelly has taught on Fine Art and Curatorial Practice programmes at Chelsea College of Art, Central Saint Martins, Kingston University and Birmingham City University.
