"I grew up in Syracuse, in New York, in a time when girls were very circumscribed ... 'sugar and spice and everything nice and that is what little girls are made of' ... but I also knew that as a girl and young woman, I was not particularly sugary or nice. And, my mom never once talked about things like menstruation or sex. So I was baffled and ashamed but went ahead anyway being the real girl that I was and I turned it all into art. I think that is what life in general is like. You see, one is told what one should be and do and feel but that is only one part of the story." 

N is for Nice explores a range of subjects relating to femininity, motherhood, gender, and childhood.

False Flag occupied a shuttered foundry that engaged in legitimate fabrication for many years, but made headlines in 2014 when former owner Brian Ramnarine was convicted in federal court of forgery on an audacious scale. The name False Flag comes from the forged Jasper Johns Flag sculpture at the center of the scandal that finally brought down the enterprise.

The publication includes a text outlining Ramnarine’s rise and fall in the art world, how False Flag acquired the space, and color photographs of exhibitions and performances by the artists from the gallery's first year of programming (2016–17) in Long Island City, New York.

The Voice Remains is the first monograph to document Kelly's work with compressed lint over the past two decades. 

"Mea Culpa is fabricated out of compressed grey lint gathered from the filter of the artist’s home dryer in which black and white clothes had been dried. Kelly attached letters to the filter and in this way produced intaglio words in the lint. She then joined together 20 units of lint, all retaining the dimensions and curved shape of the filter, to form five sixteen- to twenty-foot-long horizontal panels, each matted and framed as a separate work and titled with the site and date of a historical—which is to say, politically motivated and collective—trauma ..."

Right Now is a book of 365 stories inspired by the chronological events of an e-mail archive. A 10-year span in the artist’s life is distilled into a single new year—days, months and years are blurred into a pastiche of deconstructed personal histories. Cameron uses our perception of time as a device to formulate themes of permanence, change and nostalgia. Ultimately, the past is reiterated into the present, creating an examination of readers’ tenuous relationship to memory and time.
