Mike Kelley and David Ireland: Acts and Sites

K/IMike Kelley and David Ireland: Acts and Sites has been curated by Mary Anderson and Richard Haley, and features works by Mike Kelley and David Ireland. The exhibition focuses on the Blackout series by Kelley and the Skellig works by Ireland.

Both works take the form of a travelogue, documenting remote abandoned sites through photography. Each artist deviates from traditional forms of documentary images by weaving in forms of autobiography, malfunction, and fiction.Additional works by Robert Arneson, Nate Boyce, Bruce Nauman, Mollie Oblinger, and Annabeth Rosen are also included in the exhibition.

This exhibition is made possible with the cooperation and support of the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, 500 Capp Street Foundation, Detroit Institute of Arts, UMMA: University of Michigan Museum of Art, and Anglim Gilbert Gallery.

The exhibition will be avaible to guests at the Elaine L. Jacob Gallery (480 West Hancock), January 18 through March 22, 2019. Additionally, an opening reception will be Friday, January 18, 5-8 p.m. For additional details, contact Thomas Pyrzewski at tpyrzewski@wayne.edu.
