Fia Backström

Fia Backström’s work unfolds via a wide range of media including language, marketing, propaganda, typography, broadsides, objects, and performance. Her environments, live events, and projects challenge our habitual notions of what constitutes an exhibition — its institutional context, its dialogue with the audience, and even the works of art that are presented. Backström represented Sweden in the 2011 Venice Biennale. She lives in Brooklyn.
