ANN GREENE KELLY

Ann Greene Kelly‘s suspended exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles features sculptural works which combine “found, everyday objects, such as mattresses and tires sourced from the areas surrounding her studio, with traditional sculptural materials, drawing, and collage.”

Kelly is a participant in the Hammer Museum biennial Made in L.A. 2020. See Andrew Berardini on Kelly in Mousse 71.
