Pacifico Silano is a New York-based artist focusing on the appropriation and circulation of printed imagery. This exhibition will exclusively feature new works, created over the course of the last two years. Ashlyn Davis, former Executive Director & Curator of HCP, is returning to curate this truly unique exhibit.


Pacifico Silano is a lens-based artist whose work is an exploration of print culture, the circulation of imagery, and LGBTQ identity. Born in Brooklyn, NY, he received his MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts. His work has been exhibited in group shows, including at the Bronx Museum; Tacoma Art Museum; Oude Kerk, Amsterdam; and ClampArt, New York City. He has had solo shows at ClampArt, New York City and Baxter ST@CCNY.

Reviews of his work have appeared in The New Yorker, Artforum, Washington Post, and The New York Times. He is a winner of the Individual Photographer’s Fellowship from the Aaron Siskind Foundation and a Finalist for the Aperture Foundation Portfolio Prize. He was chosen as an Artist in Residence at Light Work in Syracuse, NY, granted a Workspace Residency at Baxter Street CCNY, and was a Key Holder Resident at the Lower East Side Printshop. He is a 2016 fellow in Photography with the New York Foundation for the Arts.

A selection of his work will be included in the upcoming exhibition Fantasy America at The Warhol Museum in 2020.
