Silvie Altschuler

Silvie Altschuler graduated with a BA in literature from McGill University, Montreal. From 2003 to 2006, she subsequently studied at Alchimia in Florence, under Manfred Bischoff. Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h hosted her first solo exhibition in 2008. Her work has been showcased in many exhibitions in Europe and in Canada, including Yield at Harbourfront Centre, curated by Melanie Egan in 2011 and The Canadian Mosaic of Metal at The Toronto Pearson Airport, curated by Aggie Beynon, held during the 2013 SNAG Conference.

Silvie’s work is very spontaneous—she insists on letting it speak for itself. She distrusts words, calling them “training wheels for cowards”.
