Silvia Hernando Alvarez


Silvia Hernando Alvarez is half-Castilian, half-Galician and lives in Dubai. She studied Fine Arts in Madrid and then Photography in France. Since obtaining her Master’s in 2017, she has spent time exploring her practice. Introduced to Tashkeel by former artist-in-residence Ruben Sanchez, Silvia has completed two Tashkeel courses (Critical Dialogues and Professional Practice). She is interested in non-truths and the history of representation – fact versus fiction and history versus myth.

Silvia Hernando Alvarez exhibited 'Under the Red Light' in 2020, culminating her participation in Tashkeel's Critical Practice Programme 2019.
