Lia Perjovschi, born in 1961 in Sibiu, lives and works in Bucharest. In her work she is mainly concerned with gathering, analysing, systematising, sharing and mediating knowledge about contemporary art and culture. The informal institution which she set up in the 90s, the Contemporary Art Archive, today called Center for Art Analysis (CAA) is based in her studio in Bucharest and also travels abroad in the form of drawings-diagrams, installations, lectures and workshops. Recently she has had solo shows at Gallery Yujiro, London (2006), The Station, Zilina Slovakia (2004), Kunsthalle Göppingen (2003) and she has participated in many group shows, among which are: Tranzit, Kunstverein Frankfurt, Periferic 7 – International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Iaşi, Again for Tomorrow, Royal College of Art, London, Interrupted Histories, Moderna Galerija Ljubljana (2006), The New Europe. Culture of Mixing and Politics of Representation, Generali Foundation Vienna (2005).
