Kelly Taylor Mitchell is an artist and educator who lives and works in Atlanta, where she is currently an Artist-in-Residence with the Studio Artist Program at The Atlanta Contemporary. Kelly is an Assistant Professor of Art and Visual Culture and the Art Program Director at Spelman College. Kelly’s multidisciplinary practice centers oral history and ancestral memory woven into the fabric of the Africana Diaspora, in order to present speculative futures, specifically related to concepts of community autonomy, swamp marronage, and inherited identity. Utilizing printmaking, papermaking, sculpture, and textiles her work manifests as immersive installations, performative objects, and partnered artists books offering a venue for the sensorial –specifically smell- to reimagine rituals and rites of autonomous kin, collectives, and individuals of the Africana Diaspora.
