Kelli Connell / Double Life: Fifteen Years Opening Reception says
The Society for Photographic Education (SPE) is pleased to present the one-person exhibition Kelli Connell / Double Life: Fifteen Years (January 13, 2016 – April 14, 2017).

The public is invited to meet Kelli Connell at the opening reception on Friday, January 13, 2017, (5:00-8:00 pm). The artist will present a gallery talk at 6:00 pm.

Kelli Connell / Double Life: Fifteen Years is a traveling exhibition organized by SPE to be circulated throughout the US following the exhibition’s opening at SPE’s headquarters in Cleveland, OH. The exhibition and public program is made possible in part with support provided by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, and by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically.

Kelli Connell states:

"These photographs reconstruct the private relationships that I have experienced personally, witnessed in public, or watched on television. The events portrayed in these photographs look believable, yet have never occurred. By digitally creating a photograph that is a composite of multiple negatives of the same model in one setting, the self is exposed as not a solidified being in reality, but as a representation of social and interior investigations that happen within the mind."
