Jacob Kassay was born in 1984 in Lewiston, NY. He lives and works in Los Angeles. His work is present, among others, by the following institutions : Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, Italie; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; FRAC Poitou-Charentes, Angoulême, France; Albright Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo; Museo Di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Rovereto, Italie. Exhibitions: 303, New York (2013); Art:Concept, Paris (2013) Untitled (disambiguation), The Kitchen, New York (2012), No Goal, The Powerstation, Dallas (2012), Xavier Hufkens, Brussels (2012)

Kassay’s work concerns a formal approach to the placement and objectivity of paintings. Adhering to a set of strict reductive strategies shared by modern artists, Kassay’s work focuses on situating objects according to their spatial limits while foregrounding the experience of the contingencies and provisional duration of their exhibition.
