Kelly Rae is a doctoral candidate at Stony Brook University in Art History and Criticism. She researches social practice and institutional critique. Her work interrogates forms of art-making and exchange enmeshed in the corporeal senses (taste, touch, smell), materiality, and collective participation. In addition, she studies new media and emerging technologies, acting as founding curator and director of programing for The Current, an in-development museum dedicated to digital art. She teaches at Pratt Institute and Stony Brook University, and coleads Code & Craft, a series that brings engineers, technologists, and artists together to experiment with physical art and programing.
