Gerard & Kelly: State of

Gerard & Kelly will reside at the FLAX house on the occasion of their performance State of, which  will be taking place on February 16 at MOCA during Frieze Los Angeles.

Using The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA as a space to open up the creative process of contemporary dance, artists and choreographers Gerard & Kelly will present the performance State of (2017) as part of Frieze Los Angeles week. An ongoing collaboration with New York–based dancer Forty Smooth, Gerard & Kelly will use the piece to address present global conditions of political and social upheaval in search of emerging possibilities. Working together since 2003, Gerard & Kelly create installations and presentations encompassing influences in minimalist dance, institutional critique, and queer theory. The performance will be followed by a discussion with the artists and other creative collaborators (to be announced).
