Paper rad

Last Name: 
Paper rad
First Name: 

Paper Rad is composed of Jacob Ciocci, Jessica Ciocci and Benjamin Jones. Their painting, music, performance, animation, web art and drawing interweave to generate an extraordinarily compelling body of work. They infuse the familiar and the comfortable with unexpected shifts of meaning. Their art has been described as "Blakean", and like Blake they divine a cast of characters with a desire for transcendence. Using a vibrant palette, they explore transformation through the use of myth and playful, meta-ironic humor. Paper Rad has screened, performed and exhibited at the Contemporary Museum, Honolulu (2003); Tate Britain, London (2003); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2003); the Institute of Contemporary Art, London (2003); Deitch Projects, New York (2003); The New York Underground Film Festival (2003); Ocularis Cinema, Brooklyn (2003); Team, New York (2003); Daniel Reich Gallery, New York (2002). Paper Rad has been featured in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Art Review, Mute, Vice, Issue and Select. They will be included in the forthcoming book, "Internet Art", edited by Rachel Green and published by Thames and Hudson (2004), and will participate in the 2004 Liverpool Biennial. www.paperrad.com
