During her studies she received a scholarship to study at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (USA), worked at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice and participated in a workshop by Dan Perjovschi at the Summer Academy in Salzburg. She has worked for a multimedia theater group Shadow Casters and have participated in the residential program SAP2009 in the Republic of Korea, where, together with Elvis Krstulović, they organized a series of lectures and issued a website. Momentarily,she is attending a curatorial program organized by SCCA Ljubljana and have been appointed curator at the PM Gallery in Zagreb. She is writing for different magazines and web portals, as well as self published print-web-publications. Iva collaborates with several artists and cultural workers on different projects (with Nataša Tepavčević on Distribution of Knowledge and with Elvis Krstulović on Art&Market). She has been working in the field of performative and conceptual practices (The Kissing Piece, (re)production, Recreation) but has recently shifted toward more imaginative approaches to art through construction of narratives instead of deconstruction and has started using time based media in accordance to this shift (When I’m Five: Donald and Kiefer Sutherland as Paul Gaugain).
