José Carlos Casado

1971, Born in Málaga, lives in New York, USA.

José Carlos Casado (Spanish, b. 1971) is an artist with a multifaceted practice, using technologies to create work involving video, 3D animation, sculpture, photography, installation, and performance. His work examines the ideas behind universal experiences such as birth, fear and sex and the role technology plays in influencing the images we see every day. He also explores digital technologies to abstract the physicality of movement from the body.

Casado started 2014 as a resident at Watermill Center where he worked on “Sacrifice” — a series of sculptures, videos, drawings, installations, and performance, with a largescale sculpture at the centerpiece. Next he has been invited to participate in two public art projects: Water Tank Project in NYC and Broadway Augmented in Sacramento, and will be sailing the Arctic in October, part of the Arctic Circle Residency.

In 2013, Casado had two solo exhibitions in Shanghai and one in Madrid and was invited to create a Swatch Art Limited Edition watch, presented at the 55th Venice Biennale. He was also commissioned to create a video installation for the singer M.I.A.’s album release party in Brooklyn. He has participated in more than 20 international New Media Festivals, including Sundance and ArsElectronica, and has won numerous prizes and recognitions, including a grant from Picasso Foundation, MIT’s Leonardo Excellence Award, and two New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships.

Casado founded NY/Anantapur in 2010, a foundation to raise funds to build schools in India. Two schools have been built so far and are used by more than 500 children and adults, as primary schools and civic centers.

A MFA graduate of the School of Visual Arts, Casado has been based in New York for 16 years.
