Anna Parisi

Anna Parisi is a Brazilian interdisciplinary visual artist who works primarily with collage, sculpture, performance, and video. She holds a BA in Communications and Filmmaking from the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) and an MFA in Fine Arts from Parsons, The New School of Design in New York. Through her practice, she explores themes around racial politics and the oppression of minorities inviting engagement and allowing space for self-reflection, vulnerability, and healing. Her insistance in creating artworks that oppose structural racism and oppression against minorities is a gesture towards more lively and empathetic futures for those whose voices have been invisibilized, silenced or erased. She is the recipient of the Lynn and John Kearney Fellowship for Equity at Gallery Affero, the Taller Creative Capital and the Leslie Lohman Museum Artist Fellowship. Her work has been presented at Superchief Gallery, The Every Woman Biennial, The Real House, Akbank Sanat, EFA Project Space, [.BOX] Videoart project space Milan, The Anya and Andrew Shiva Gallery at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, The Hunter East Harlem Art Gallery, La Galleria La Mama, UrbanGlass, The Bureau of General Services—Queer Division and The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, Smack Mellon, Wesbeth Gallery, Artigo Rio, Musée D’Elysee in Lausanne, amongst others.
