Seth Price (born December 13, 1973, East Jerusalem) currently lives and works in New York. 

Seth Price is a multi-disciplinary artist who has gained international attention for his videos, sculptures, sound installations, and texts. Presenting a portrait of contemporary life, Price’s work addresses questions about appropriation, the distribution of cultural production, and the role and meaning of art. Novelist Rachel Kushner describes Seth Price’s work as a “vision so accurate it becomes fiction” in the way he probes and manipulates the flux of culture and the digital technologies of today.” Most recently, Seth Price's solo exhibition titled “No Technique” was on view at the Aspen Art Museum from November 2019-March 2020. In 2017-2018, Seth Price presented a comprehensive survey exhibition, Social Synthetic, at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands which then travelled to the Brandhorst Museum, Munich, Germany. His exhibition Danny, Mila, Hannah, Ariana, Bob, Brad was on view at MoMA Ps1 over the summer of 2018. His most recent exhibition Hell Has Everything was on view at the Petzel Chelsea gallery in November 2018-January 2019. He also has had solo exhibitions at Institute of Contemporary Art, London; MAMbo - Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna, Italy; Kunsthalle Zürich, Switzerland; Modern Art Oxford, Oxford, England (with Kelley Walker); Petzel Gallery, New York; Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne; Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada; Galleria Emi Fontana, Milan, Italy (with Michael Smith); Artists Space, New York; and Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York. Group exhibitions include dOCUMENTA (13), the 2011 Venice Biennale ILLUMInations, New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; Altermodern, the fourth Tate Triennial at Tate Britain, UK; Galerie Rudolfinum, Prague; Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, Texas; Le Plateau, Paris; Air de Paris, Paris; Greater New York at P.S.1 Center for Contemporary Art, New York; Kunsthalle Basel; SculptureCenter, Long Island City, New York; the 2002 and 2008 Whitney Biennials; 2003 Ljubljana Biennial; Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art, Florida; and Paula Cooper Gallery, New York, among others.

His video works have been screened at the Rotterdam Film Festival; Tate Britain, London; Institute of Contemporary Art, London; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Eyebeam, New York; and Biennale de l'Image en Mouvement, Saint-Gervais, Geneva, among others. In January 2019, the Guggenheim presented Price's on-going video Redistribution. Over time, it has been presented in eight distinct versions; this event will feature the newest. 

His work is included in the collections of the Kunsthaus Zürich, Zürich; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Since the early 2000s, when his work began to appear in the context of the visual arts, Seth Price has considered what is at stake when the physical and formal differentiation of “things” and how we come to know them as material reality—bodies and objects but also texts and sounds, as well as a range of sensual and behavioral relationships, whether in the arts, politics, or any area of everyday life—are challenged and transformed by the unified flow of images and information in the interminable digital stream.
