Center for Curatorial Studies presents

Anti-Establishment Performance: Brennan Gerard and Ryan Kelly

Wednesday, December 19, 2012



Clocks, charcoal on floor, and performance

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 - 3pm

CCS Bard Galleries

Performance duration: 30 minutes


Two clocks—one cycling forward, the other in reverse—mark military and personal time. When their times momentarily coincide, two performers begin a movement score based on the ticking of a clock, fading in and out of memory while falling in and out of sync.


Projects by Gerard and Kelly are co-produced by Moving Theater with the support of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, New York State Council on the Arts, and numerous generous individuals.


This performance is part of their work in the exhibition Anti-Establishment , which is on view now at CCS Bard through December 21st.


Collaborating since 2003, Brennan Gerard and Ryan Kelly approach art as a series of experiments to work through questions of spectatorship, desire, authorship, and the formation of political consciousness.  They recently completed the Whitney Independent Study Program and are currently pursuing MFAs in the Interdisciplinary Studio at the University of California, Los Angeles.  Their work has been presented in performances in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Lisbon, and Paris, including at Danspace Project at St. Mark’s Church; Park Avenue Armory, LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions); and the Whitney Museum of American Art.  Recent group exhibitions include Anti-Establishment, CCS Bard, Center for Curatorial Studies and Hessel Museum of Art; and Cult of The Ruin, University Art Gallery at the University of California, Irvine.  Gerard and Kelly are the founders and co-directors of Moving Theater
