Artist Demonstration: M Kelley
Join artist M Kelley to learn more about the techniques and processes used to create the textiles in Weaving Splendor: Treasures of Asian Textiles from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
M Kelley’s career includes a multifaceted and thorough approach to the arts. Driven by themes of communication and borderland archivism, their work explores the ways in which people of color and mixed descent navigate, generate, and hold space for cultural memory, traditional practices, place, and leadership while driving progress. By inviting others into collaboration, curiosity, and cross-pollination, Kelley creates immersive, interactive spaces for dialogue, design thinking, and connection.
Kelley’s civic and social-practice work focuses on sustainability for artists at all levels through creative placemaking, civic consulting, community development, advocacy, equitable access, and mentorship in the intersections of creativity, technology, and innovation, with an emphasis on activating creative community workspaces and making space for creative disruption.
They are a graduate of the Learning Lab, the Racial Equity in Arts Leadership Institute, and Vanderbilt University’s Leading Innovation in Arts and Culture. They are also a member of the Metro Nashville Committee for Antiracism and Racial Equity. They are proud to serve as a community ambassador of Nashville’s vibrant artist culture.
