Gerard & Kelly: State of

Performance

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).
