Lýdia Pribišová, PhD.

born in 1980, in Bratislava, Slovak Republic, is a curator and art historian, lives in Bratislava. Since 2006 she is Slovak editor of Flash Art Czech & Slovak Edition, since 2015 managing editor. 2013 – 2015 she used to work as project coordinator in tranzit.sk (www.tranzit.org). 2013 -2014 she had been collaborated with Kunsthalle Bratislava, curating discussion series called Lupa. 2012 she founded nonprofit initiative PILOT http://www.pilot-projects.info. She is member of Slovak AICA and member of curatorial board White House Biennial in Athens. In 2007 and 2011 she co-curated Slovak section of Prague Biennale, organised by Helena Kontova and Giancarlo Politi. In 2007 she co-founded gallery of immaterial art www.evolutiondelart.net. She is contributor in magazines Flash Art, Artribune, Luxflux and Vlna.

In 2013 she obtained PhD degree at the University La Sapienza in Rome, with doctoral thesis under the tutorship of Professor Simonetta Lux La Quadriennale di Roma Dall’Ente autonomo alla Fondazione. Una riflessione sulla trasformazione. Quadriennale of Rome. From Public Body to Foundation. Reflection on transformation. In 2010 she was awarded by the Lemmermann Foundation for this research.

Lýdia Pribišová is interested in testing the boundaries of art. In her curatorial projects, she focuses on subversive art practices that go against typical social and cultural patterns. In her work, Pribišová observes how cultural stereotypes are constructed as well as the shifting positions of individual subjects in society. She works with themes of collective memory, sharing, and local Central European history, in part by questioning social rules, conformism, and the changing role of public space in post-communist societies.

She collaborated with institutions and galleries in various countries:
