About Jeanette Spicer
‘Jeanette Spicer (b.1988, Baltimore, MD) is a New York based artist who creates performative videos, photographs, and mixed media to generate opportunity for collaboration between herself, partners, friends and family members that allow her to engage and interact with them in alternatively intimate ways. She is curious about how the body can hold intimacy, restraint, and a space of reclaiming – both physically and psychologically, along with the engagement of activities with other bodies that already carry a connection with one another; through the work, these questions and desires become nameable and physical. She is an adjunct professor at The International Center of Photography, School of Visual Arts, and Pratt Institute.’ – Kris Graves Projects
