Endi Poskovic

Endi Poskovic is a visual artist known for his work in printmedia which invokes influences as diverse as early cinema, Japanese ukiyo-e prints, and European Propaganda posters.  Traversing analog and digital realms in his creative practice of drawing, printmaking and animation, Poskovic explores the nature of composite narrative in which visual signifiers, both real and invented, intersect to form imagery suggestive of dichotomies, proposing themes of displacement, transformation and revival. 

Educated in Yugoslavia, Norway, and the United States, Poskovic’s works have been exhibited worldwide in important biennials and triennials including Taiwan Taichung Biennial, Krakow Triennial, la Biennale de Trois-Rivières, Deutsche Triennale Frechen, Tallinn Triennial, Ljubljana Biennale, and New Prints Series at the International Print Center New York.  Comprehensive solo exhibitions of his work have been organized by the Philadelphia Print Center, Plains Art Museum, Des Moines Art Center, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Frans Masereel Centrum, which traveled to Stad Leuven Academie en Conservatorium and Ghent Academie voor Beeldende Kunst, and Tidaholm Konstlitografiska Museet. A mid-career retrospective of Poskovic’s work is scheduled to open in 2020 at Zhejiang Art Museum in Hangzhou, China.

Poskovic is the recipient of notable fellowships from the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation-Bellagio Center in Italy, Fulbright Commission Senior Research Fellowship to Poland, Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Camargo Foundation in France, Open Studio Toronto, New York State Arts Council, Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium, MacDowell Colony, Kala Art Institute, Norwegian Government, and others. Museum collections which hold works by the artist include the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Fogg Art Museum-Harvard University; the Detroit Institute of Arts; Jincheon Art Museum, South Korea, Tampa Museum of Fine Arts, Vaasa Ostrobothnian Museum, Finland, and many others.

In 2012 and 2015, Poskovic served on the International Jury of the Krakow International Triennial. He is Professor at the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art & Design.
