Polina Protsenko  is an interdisciplinary artist and educator who holds a BFA with distinguished honors from the Studio for Interrelated Media and Art Education from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She is currently completing her MFA in Performance at the School of Art Institute of Chicago.

Polina's art making is a performative process which focuses on human intimacy and agency in a social context as a way to examine our relationships with one another.  These experiences are often produced through movement based actions, scripted interactions, site specific installations, print media, and videos to construct collaborative exchanges. She invites participants to re-imagine the potential capabilities our body hold and the collective role we play in through the inclusion of women's perspective.
