LUIS GISPERT (b. 1972, Jersey City) is a Cuban-American artist who makes sculpture, photographs, and video work that comments on cultural aesthetic tastes. He received a BFA in film from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a MFA in sculpture from Yale University. For Pin Pan Pun, a 2012 exhibition at Rhona Hoffman Gallery, he transformed quotidian household objects into exotic fantasy. In his 2011 exhibition "Decepción," Gispert presented photographed car interiors customized with designer logos like Gucci or Fendi. Positioning the viewer as the driver in these life-size photographs, he dared his audience to look past distracting logos to the lush, idyllic landscape past the windshield.
Luis Gispert’s solo exhibitions include the Centre Cultural Conteporani Pelaires, Palma de Mallorca, Spain, the Museum of Contemporary Art at Goldman Warehouse, North Miami, FL, Luis Gispert & Jeffrey Reed: Stereomongrel at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and Urban Myths Part I at Miami Art Central, Miami. His work is included in public collections including the Miami Art Museum, Miami, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
