The first museum exhibition in the United States of the work of Sanja Iveković covers four decades of the artist’s remarkable career. A feminist, activist, and video pioneer, Iveković came of age in the early 1970s during the period known as the Croatian Spring, when artists broke free from mainstream institutional settings, laying the ground for a form of praxis antipodal to official art. Part of the generation known as the Nova Umjetnička Praska (New Art Practice), Iveković produced works of cross-cultural resonance that range from conceptual photomontages to video and performance. Iveković offers a fascinating view into the official politics of power, gender roles, and the paradoxes inherent in society’s collective memory. The exhibition will be accompanied by a major publication.
