Jacob Kassay  (American, 1984) 

Jacob Kassay (American, b.1984) is a painter, sculptor, and filmmaker, born in Lewistown, NY, and currently living and working in Los Angeles, CA. Kassay often incorporates silver in his paintings and sculptures, ultimately creating mirror-like works that interact with their environment through shifting color and light reflections. Kassay received his BFA in photography in 2005 from the State University of New York, Buffalo. While at Buffalo, he co-founded and directed a performance and exhibition space titled Kitchen Distribution. Kassay has had solo exhibitions at MoMA PS1 in New York, NY; ICA in London, UK; 303 Gallery in New York, NY; Off-Vendome in Dusseldorf, Germany; Art: Concept in Paris, France; The Kitchen in New York, NY; L&M Arts in Los Angeles, CA; and Eleven Rivington in New York, NY; among others.
