As part of the Dragan Ilić retrospective Re(Evolution) on Friday, June 21st at 6 p.m. there will be a special performance RoboAction A1 K1 at the Museum of Contemporary art.

The Dragan Ilić retrospective exhibition represents a cross-section of the artist's body of work that spans over several decades. The exhibition showcases his most significant conceptual works and a selection of artistic projects in different media, which were realized in Australia, USA, Japan, as well as Belgrade – at the Students’ Cultural Centre, the Centre for Cultural Decontamination and other institutions. Belgrade audiences are familiar with Ilić’s radical, interactive performances, in which the audience threw sharpened pencils at the artists, his drawings that were executed with the help of a robot, and the art space ITS-Z1 that the artist founded in Belgrade.
Dragan Ilić (born in Belgrade 1948) attended the School of Art in Canberra at the Australian National University (1974-1975), as well as the Millenium Film Lab, Dov S-S Simens Film programme in New York (1986). He was active in the Australian art scene, before moving to New York, where he lived and worked over the next several decades. In 2007, Ilić returned to Belgrade, where he founded the art space ITS-Z1. Ilić exhibited and conducted performances in Australia, USA, Japan, South Korea, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, France, Great Britain, etc. In the early 1980s, Ilić was active at the Fashion Moda Gallery in the Bronx, that under the organization of Jenny Holzer and Stefan Eins participated in the 1982 exhibition documenta 7 in Kassel (the artists that exhibited included Kiki Smith, Keith Haring, John Fekner, Kenny Sharf, Tom Otterness, Louise Lawler, Dragan Ilić, etc.). In recent years, Ilić performed at the prestigious Ars Electronica Festival in Linz.
