Performers: Ana Prvacki
Ana Prvacki (b. 1976, Serbia) is an artist whose work draws on daily practices and social research. Her interventions are meant to transform the viewer’s perception and experience of daily life and routine, providing solutions to our everyday problems, worries, and fears. She explores social anxiety and the comedic potential of faux pas as well as the sociopolitical significance of welcoming the “other.” Prvacki was recently an Artist-in-Residence at the Hammer Museum (Los Angeles) where she developed “Greeting Committee” (2011), a participatory project about gestures of hospitality, civility, and etiquette. She has shown in numerous international venues including: SMART Museum (Chicago), Bloomberg (NY), Lombard-Freid Projects (NY), Art in General (NY), Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (Boston), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea (Turin), Sydney Biennial, Singapore Biennial, and the Turin Triennale. Prvacki is based in Los Angeles and Singapore.
