Pacifico Silano: Speaking Little, Perhaps Not a Word

(Thursday) (Saturday)

Speaking Little, Perhaps Not a Word borrows its title from the final verse of Walt Whitman’s poem, “A Glimpse,” a brief work reflecting on the quiet spaces where intimacy, memory, and longing reside unspoken amid the spirited volumes of everyday life. Equally meditative, Silano's photographic work recombines imagery sourced from gay erotica to explore loss, desire, and melancholy through the lens of the 1980s AIDS crisis. His uncle’s death due to complications of HIV and subsequent family erasure have been the catalyst for his ongoing work around these themes. Speaking Little, Perhaps Not a Word is Pacifico Silano's first solo exihibtion with the Bronx Museum and is presented alongside the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.

 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, New York, he received an MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts. His work has been presented in solo exhitions at ClampArt, Baxter ST@CCNY, Rubber-Factory and Stellar Projects, NYC. His work has been exhibited in group shows including at The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Tacoma Art Museum, and Museo Universitario del Chopo, Mexico City. His work has been reviewed in The New Yorker, Artforum, The Washington Post, and The Brooklyn Rail. He is a recipient of the Aaron Siskind Foundation Fellowship and a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Photography.

 Speaking Little, Perhaps Not a Word is presented at the Bronx Museum's Block Gallery in Lower Manhattan. In 2020, Silano's work will be included in the forthcoming exhibition, Fantasy America, at The Andy Warhol">Andy Warhol Museum; additionally, a solo presentation of work will be exhibited at the Houston Center for Photography.
