Alina Yakirevitch


Alina Yakirevitch is an artist, filmmaker and writer based in New York. Born in the mid 90's in Russia amidst the collapse of the USSR, her and her family fled the country in a wave of mass migration. The cultural weight of the Cold War and the experience of East to West migration fuel Yakirevitch’s studio practice. In her work, a vision of society before the rule of law and prehistoric art are core references. She holds an MFA from Hunter College. Her work was shown in Hauser and Wirth Gallery, New York; NADA Fair, New York, NADA Miami and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Recent shows include: Tongue Tied Diver, a solo show at All St Gallery, New York; 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; In with the Old: (Nearly) Six Years of Project Art Distribution, Yeh Art Gallery, St. John's University, New York; Fire Exit, 205 Hudson Gallery, New York; and Swap Meet, P.A.D.
