Artists at Work: Gerard & Kelly by Natilee Harren
Since 2003, Brennan Gerard and Ryan Kelly (as Gerard & Kelly) have worked at the juncture of dance, text, and visual art. Their conceptually-based “choreographic scores" nimbly engage topics such as collective and individual memory, time, gender and sexuality, queer subjectivity, and dyadic relationships.
