Amy Prcevich interrogates narratives of social and public space, time, the office, language and labour – specifically the nature and value of artists’ labour. Her employment in galleries and museums and engagement with artist communities informs her conceptual, spatial and text-based practice. Amy recently completed a Master of Fine Arts at University of New South Wales. Informed by her experience as artist-as-worker this research resulted in a new video work entitled Workaround (2023) which draws on office tropes and the conventions of the instructional video to present a series of strategies used to claim time and space for art making in the context of the office.
Amy has been the recipient of several grants and residencies including Test Sites, Public Art Project Development Grant from the City of Melbourne and Parramatta Artist Studios. Amy has exhibited at The Substation, Arts House Meat Market, Arts House North Melbourne, True Estate, First Site Gallery (VIC) and Wellington Street Projects, PARI and Firstdraft (NSW). She is the curator for Language Exchange at Fairfield City Museum and Gallery (NSW) opening February 2024. This exhibition foregrounds the complexity of experience in being connected to non-English cultural languages while living in predominantly English-speaking Australia.
Alongside Elvis Richardson, Miranda Samuels and Shevaun Wright, Amy is part of the art-activist collective Countess Report, the go-to resource for artwork and analysis on gender representation in the Australian visual arts sector.
