Curator of the Documentary Arts & Director of the Power Plant Gallery
Caitlin Margaret Kelly (she/her/hers) is the Curator of the Archive of Documentary Arts at the Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library and the Director of the Power Plant Gallery. As part of her role at Duke she engages with most stages of the art process from advising undergraduate and graduate students, to curating and programming exhibitions with professional artists, and collecting work for long-term preservation. Among the exhibitions she has curated is an experimental sound exhibition, Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent, and a retrospective of the drawings by noted author and Guggenheim Fellow, Allan Gurganus. Kelly is also a photographer whose art is based on intentional interactions with landscapes and exploring the fragility and decay inherent in the medium.
