Jeff Daniel Silva is an international artist and curator currently based in the US. Silva studied Cinema and Photography at Ithaca College and received an MFA in Visual Art from Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier. He currently teaches experimental, documentary and ethnographic film studies and production at Harvard University & the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Silva’s installations, videos and documentary projects tend to challenge the boundaries and conventions of their form as he works fluidly between the interstices of art, documentary film and ethnography. Whether Silva is probing cultural or linguistic spaces, spatial or temporal logic, or exploring ethical or political concerns, his usage of the moving-image plays a central role in his corporeal expression and exploration of historical, political and moral ambiguities.
