Silvina Mizrahi

I was born in Tucuman, Argentina, and I’ve been living in Boston, MA, since 2001. I received my degree in Fine Arts at the University of Tucuman in 1991. I then moved to Buenos Aires, where I trained in sculpture under the supervision of different artists, including Maestro Antonio Pujia and Maestro Antonio D'aniello. I also trained in Dance and Theatre, participating in courses from Moira Chapman (Buenos Aires), Martha Graham School (New York), and Marta Bercy (Cuballet), among others. In 1996 I was awarded with two prizes in the National Biennial for Small Format in Argentina. In 2000, while living in Israel, I was selected for two solo exhibitions, in the Jerusalem Municipal Gallery and the Jerusalem Center for Performing Arts. In addition, I was awarded with the Israel National Fellowship for New Immigrants. In recent years, I have been selected for numerous solo and group exhibitions, including as a solo artist, exhibitions at the Equator Gallery on Newbury Street in Boston, the renowned Rice-Polak Gallery of Art, in Provincetown, the Aronow Gallery of Art in Sausalito, San Francisco, and two solo exhibitions at the Argentinian Consulate in New York (2010/2013) and the Museum Timoteo Navarro in Argentina (2012). I also participated in group exhibitions at the Copley Society Gallery, deCordova Museum of Art in Lincoln, and the Flux Exhibition at the Piano Factory in Boston. In 2002, I was elected Full Member of the Copley Society Boston, and awarded with the Nathaniel Bushward Award in the Spring Exhibition of their Gallery. In 2003, I had the opportunity to represent Latin America as a solo sculptor in the Northeastern University Artist Festival. As well, I was an Invited Artist in 2006 and 2007 at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. In 2012, I was awarded “one of the 100 most influential people for the Latino Community in Boston.” In 2017, I was selected for the Unity Magazine to be the Artist representing the Spanish Heritage Month, and I received the Director’s Choice Award at the Menino Center for the Arts in Boston. Recently, I was selected to have a solo exhibition at Maison De L’Argentine in Paris, France.

"Mizrahi approaches a kind of human condition from the figure, without meaning a reproduction, an imitation, neither a process of mimesis. Her delicate figures denote a marked expressionism, and their characteristic deformation, talk about this condition." La Gaceta, Tucuman, Argentina 1997

“Mizrahi takes us on a journey into her world. Hers is a figurative work of delicate sculpture--people flung about in a frenzy of dance, figures frozen in a static embrace, images of love and emergence. This work is at once mystifying, and grounded in human experience.” Daniel Lahoda, Curator, The Equator Gallery, Boston, 2001

“Silvina also studied dance with, among others, the Martha Graham School and is an accomplished dancer and choreographer. This interest is clearly evident in her lovely figurative sculptures, executed in bronze employing the lost wax method. Her attenuated figures literally dance and float on their pedestals.” The Rice/Polak Gallery, Provincetown, Massachusetts 2003

“Mizrahi summarizes in all her art her ancestral past, her dance experience, her ingenuity, her love, her harmony with nature, and specially her unique relationship with Dalilah, her daughter, who transport her to a simpler world.” Claudia Epstein, Director Visual Arts, Ministry of Education, Tucuman, 2011
