ARTIST TALK AND SCREENING: MARY REID KELLEY WITH PATRICK KELLEY

The Thong of Dionysus

Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley will screen and discuss their 2015 short film, THE THONG OF DIONYSUS, on the High Line on October 14

Who: Mary Reid Kelley, Patrick Kelley
What: Artist talk and screening
Where: The High Line, 14th Street Passage, West 14th Street at 10th Ave.
When: Friday, October 14, free with advance registration, 6:00
Why: Originally scheduled for October 12, the High Line Art talk and screening with multidisciplinary artist Mary Reid Kelley and her collaborator husband Patrick Kelley, focusing on one of the films in their current High Line Channel 14 exhibition, “We’re Wallowing Here in Your Disco Tent,” a collection of five shorts that meld Greek mythology with historical references, has been moved to October 14 at 6:00. South Carolina native Reid Kelley and Kelley will be at the 14th Street Passage, taking attendees behind the scenes of the making of their 2015 short film The Thong of Dionysus, the finale to Reid Kelley’s Minotaur trilogy, in which Dionysus, Ariadne, and the Minotaur search for a “raisin to live.” In the nine-and-a-half-minute unusual comedy, Dionysus proclaims, “Let a liquid lunch launch us into the unconscious,” leading to a wild tale in which Kelley portrays all the characters. Continuing through November 2 from 6:00 each night until the park closes, “We’re Wallowing Here in Your Disco Tent” also features Camel Toe, The Queen’s English, The Syphilis of Sisyphus, and Sadie, the Saddest Sadist.
