All the Stuff I Left Out of My Noontime Lecture

Kelly Lloyd graduated from Oberlin College in 2008 with a BA in Studio Art, African-American Studies, and Environmental Studies. Since then, she has interned in the curatorial department of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art through an Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship and taught art for two years in Madurai, India for an Oberlin Shansi Fellowship. Both experiences formed her interest in what remains when what you think you know about the integrity of art objects, the world, and yourself are completely blown apart. Currently, Lloyd's practice includes putting two to three objects next to one another, faux lecturing and forming her writing into objects. She is currently pursuing a dual MFA in Painting and Drawing and MA in Visual and Critical Studies.
