Alina Yakirevitch is an artist, filmmaker and writer based in New York. She was born in Post-Soviet Russia in the mid 90's, known as Russia's "wild" decade. As part of a massive wave of migration and an attempt to escape Antisemitism, her Jewish family left for Israel before the turn of the century. Yakirevitch, who recognizes Zionism as a colonial project, left Israel in her early 20's and moved to NY.  The recurring experience of an East to West migration informs the political engagement in her studio practice. She holds an MFA from Hunter College and works as an educator and film producer. Her work was shown in Hauser and Wirth Gallery, New York, NADA Fair, New York, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Recent shows: Frozen, two person show with Anna Sofie Jespersen at All St Gallery, New York, What is and What Should Never Be, two person show with Martine Flör at Neuer Kunstverein Wien in Vienna, Austria, Little Light of Mine, two person show with Craig Jun Li at P.A.D Gallery, New York, Six Stages, P.A.D Gallery at NADA New York, Time Space with Bush Collective, at Edmond de Rothschild Foundation, Tel Aviv, and Two Sheets (3) to the Wind, P.A.D Gallery and Department of Reflection, NADA Miami.
