The artist was presented in a group exhibition in 2018 curated by Maurizo Cattelan at Yuz Museum, Shanghai. Spaulings had a solo exhibition at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2017) and exhibited at Centre Pompidou, Paris (2016) and Whitney Museum, New York (2015) in Collected by Thea Westreich Wagner and Ethan Wagner.
