Anna Parisi (b. 1984) is an Afro-Brazilian interdisciplinary artist, writer, and curator who works primarily with collage, sculpture, performance, and video as medium. Through her practice, she provokes, invokes, and evokes cathartic, visceral experiences around politics that invite engagement and allow space for self-reflection, vulnerability, and healing. Dismantling and opposing the vicious apparatuses of hegemonic patriarchy, colonialism, and systemic violence that have silenced, erased, and oppressed BIPOC heritage, livelihood, and futures inspires her artistic practice. Anna received 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. Her work has been presented in The United States, Brazil, Europe, and Asia. She is the Leslie Lohman Museum Artist Fellowship (2020) recipient, the Taller Creative Capital (2019). Anna has presented her work at twice at 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. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
