Recent and upcoming projects / exhibitions / books
Neva Lukić has completed her master's degree in art history and archaeology from the University of Zagreb, and in theory of modern and contemporary art at Leiden University. She has professional experience in museum curatorship (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rijeka), as a freelance curator (Croatian Association of Artists - Zagreb, Arti et Amicitiae - Amsterdam, See Lab - The Hague, etc.) and as an art critic (active member of Croatian section of AICA - the International Association of Art Critics). In addition to the above, she is active as a writer too. She has published four books (poetry & short stories) and one picture book for children. She has participated in various poetry readings/literary festivals (Belgrade, Zagreb, Skopje, Ljubljana), and also in film festivals (Cannes, Seoul, Utrecht, etc.). She collaborates with the artists from other art fields with the aim to create interdisciplinary artworks like short film, literary performance, etc.
Neva Lukić has been interested in the phenomenon of the cross-border interactions and identities and intercultural exchanges (collaborations with individuals and institutions from different European regions and countries). She practices the interdisciplinary approach towards arts and exhibition making and tends to connect her curatorial practice with the writing one. One could say that lately the focus has been on „the space“, „the narrative“, „the identity“ and „the language“, wriggling throughout both practices.
Lukić lives in Croatia and the Netherlands.
