Jacob Ciocci is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY, and Oberlin, OH.

He has performed and exhibited at a variety of venues including the New Museum and MOMA in New York, Tate Britain. Recent activity includes a comprehensive screening of his video work at Anthology Film Archives and an exhibit at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto.
Ciocci, his performance group Extreme Animals, and his former collective Paper Rad have received critical acclaim in a range of publications, including: the New York Times; ArtReview; Artforum; Art in America and Vice.
