Bio

 

John Kelly is an artist who works in performance and visual art.  Originally trained as a dancer with American Ballet Theatre, the Harkness House for Ballet Arts, and Charles Weidman, he also studied painting and drawing with Larry Rivers and Barbara Pearlman at Parsons School of Design, and traditional painting techniques with Hannah Barrett at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts School.   He trained in Decroux corporeal mime at the Theatre d’lAnge Fou in Paris, trapeze and tite-wire with the Pickle Family Circus in San Francisco, and voice with Peter Elkus at the Academia Musicale Ottorino Respighi in Assisi, Italy.


His relationship to the mirror began in the dance studio, and evolved to the making of self-portraits: drawing, painting, photography and video. 


Performances have been based on subjects ranging from autobiography, to cultural and political phenomenon such as the Berlin Wall, the Troubadours, the AIDS epidemic, and Expressionistic Film.   He has created character studies based on historic figures such as Egon Schiele, Caravaggio, Antonin Artaud, Joni Mitchell, and Jean Cocteau.


Visual Art exhibitions include MOMA, Alexander Gray Associates; The New Museum for Contemporary Art; PS 1; MIT List Visual Art Center; Institute for Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; Art In General; Momenta Arts; The Kitchen; The American Academy in Rome; FotoGrafia-Festival Internazionale di Roma; MACRO Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma; Biagiotti Progetto Arte; the Saratoga Art Museum; and Harvard University.   Residencies include Yaddo; The MacDowell Colony; The Civitella Ranieri Center; The Sundance Institute Theatre Program; and the P.S.1 National Studio Artist Program.


Awards and Fellowships: 2 Bessie Awards; 2 Obie Awards; 2 NEA American Masterpiece Awards; an American Choreographer Award; a CalArts/ Alpert Award in Dance/Performance; a Visual AIDS Vanguard Award; and the 2010 Ethyl Eichelberger Award.  Fellowships include: the Rome Prize in Visual Art at The American Academy in Rome; The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard; The Guggenheim Foundation; The Greenwall Foundation; The New York Foundation for the Arts; and Art Matters, Inc.


‘JOHN KELLY’, a visual autobiography, was published by the 2wice Arts Foundation in association with Aperture; he’s written essays for Movement Research Journal, Inside Arts, Metro New York, The Italian Journal, and Performing Arts Journal, and has just begun work on a memoir.


As a Singer he performed John Cage with the San Francisco Symphony; collaborated (as lyricist and director) and recorded with composer David Del Tredici; recorded with Laurie Anderson on ‘Life On A String’; on ‘Jazz Passengers In Love’; and performed with Antony and The Johnsons, Dudley Saunders, Carol Lipnik, and Chris Rael


Acting credits include the role of the opera singer Bartell D’Arcy in the Broadway production of ‘James Joyce’s The Dead’; starring as Spencer Reese in ‘The Clerk’s Tale’, a film by James Franco; as Cupid in Christopher Marlowe’s ‘Dido, Queen of Carthage’ directed by Neil Bartlett at A.R.T., 2005 Elliot Norton Award; as Jon/Persophene in Rinde Eckert’s ‘Orpheus X’, directed by Robert Wooduff, at A.R.T.; as Madame/Superior Mother in David Gordon’s ‘Uncivil Wars: Moving With Brecht & Eisler’; as The Narrator in John Cage’s ‘James Joyce, Marcel Duchamp, Erik Satie: An Alphabet’.
