Kelly Cole Rappleye

Kelly Rappleye is a curator and AHRC/SGSAH-Funded PhD researcher with Glasgow School of Art and University of Edinburgh. Since leaving her home-base in Los Angeles to complete an MA in Contemporary Art Theory with Goldsmiths, UOL in 2019-2020, Kelly has been living in Glasgow while working in arts writing, communications and curatorial research with LA-based art magazine Artillery and Glasgow-based curatorial cooperative 16 Nicholson Street Gallery.

She is currently undertaking doctoral research focused on the curation of moving images as a means of unsettling colonial legacies in urban space, developing practice-led curatorial research that will bring contemporary artists’ moving image works set in Glasgow into dialogue with archival moving images from the National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive. Her curatorial practice draws upon methods of site-writing and critical spatial practice to develop convivial paradigms of taking up space through and with the moving image, such as hosting, gathering, occupying, and listening.
