Luis Gispert

Loud Image

June 5 to September 19

In his first solo exhibition, artist Luis Gispert profoundly critiques the various dominant cultures and subcultures in contemporary American life, addressing issues of ethnicity, youth, power, and beauty. Gispert was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, and raised primarily in Miami. He trained first at Miami-Dade Community College and then at the Art Institute of Chicago and Yale University. Today, he lives and works in Brooklyn. His work cannily explores and confronts familiar aspects of youth culture, art history, hip-hop music, and, most recently, his own Cuban American background. His vividly colored photographs and booming sound sculptures have been shown widely throughout the United States, Europe, South America, and the Middle East, and have become virtual mainstays in recent surveys of contemporary art practices.

Luis Gispert/Loud Image was organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue are generously funded by the William Chase Grant 1919 Memorial Fund and the Hansen Family Fund.
