Silvia Levenson
Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Silvia Levenson immigrated to Italy in 1981,
during the “disappearances” of the Dirty War .
She explore daily interpersonal relationships through installations and objects that state
firmly what is usually felt or whispered. Her work is centralized on this unspeakable space,
which is oftentimes so small, located between what we can see and what we feel and use
glass to reveal those things that are normally hidden.
In 2004, Levenson received the Rakow Commission Award from the Corning Museum of
Glass in 2008 she was a shortlisted nominee for the Bombay Sapphire Prize and in 2016
she received The Glass in Venice Award from Istituto Veneto, Venice, Italy.
Her work has been exhibited around the world and is a part of several public collections
like Corning Museum of Glass, New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fè, Houston Fine Art
Museum, Toledo Museum of Art ,Mint Museum, Charlotte, Chrysler Museum of Art,
Sunderland Glass Museum, UK, Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes , Buenos Aires,
Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung , Munich, MUDAC , Lausanne and Castello Sforzesco
Museum, Milan
