Alumnus Jasper Spicero at Swiss Institute
March 01, 2019
Jasper Spicero '13 presents Centinel, his first institutional solo exhibition in the United States at New York's Swiss Institute.
For Centinel, Spicero installs sculptures related to his new video of the same name which is screened on a monitor in the exhibition.

Previously they curated exhibitions of Spicero’s work at LUMA Westbau, Zürich and Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris."
Spicero has had recent solo exhibitions at Mother Culture, Los Angeles (2018); Times Square Space, New York (2018); LUMA Westbau, Zürich (as part of Americans 2017, 2017); and Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (as part of Co-Workers – Network as Artist, 2015). Spicero is represented by New Gallery in Paris.
