Silvi Naçi is an artist and independent curator living and working in Boston, MA. Since moving to the U.S in 2001, Naçi has committed her creative drive to supporting artists and developing contemporary immersive experiences that enrich and bolster the discourse in contemporary art and education in various regions. Naçi's practice is motivated by a dedication to providing vigorous learning experiences in the arts and support the voices and lives of disenfranchised and ignored cultures. She has passionately worked in building interactive platforms, curated artists of marginalized backgrounds, and led public art projects. Naçi has placed her work in dialog with female artists, the LGBTQ community, and artists from other immigrant countries. Her work is grounded in compassion and curiosity and a pursuit to build strong communities.
Naçi studied at the Instituto Cultural de Oaxaca (Oaxaca, Mexico 2004), Studio Art Centers International (Florence, Italy 2008), and graduated from the New England School of Art & Design at Suffolk University with a dual degree in Fine Arts & Graphic Design (2011). Naçi was a curatorial intern at MIT's LIST Visual Arts Center (Cambridge, MA), and served as Assistant Director at Samsøñ (Boston, MA), Art Director at the Liquid Art House (Boston, MA) and curator at the Fourth Wall Project (Boston, MA), the Distillery Gallery (South Boston, MA), and the Blanc Gallery (Dorchester, MA).
