(b. 1980, lives and works in Chicago, Illinois, United States)
Vida Sačić (Croatian and American, b.1980) is a Chicago-based artist, designer and educator. Her work in print media explores the relationship between printing and language. She prints and creates large-scale installations; assemblages of prints on paper, textiles and fiber using movable type, letters that can be touched, and a printing press. As Jonathan Goodman noted in The Brooklyn Rail, she composes" highly advanced abstract composition(s), whose unusual beauty takes place because of Sačić's innate sense of balance and strong accumulations of form." Her works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions nationwide, including DeVos Art Museum (MI), Art Mora Gallery (New York City), Columbia College (Chicago) and The Center for Book Arts (New York City). Sačić has been recognized as an Artist-in-Residence at The Penland School of Art and Craft, The Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum and The Center for Book and Paper Arts in Chicago among others. She is an Associate Professor of Art at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. www.vida-sacic.com
