Alexandria Eregbu

Alexandria Eregbu is a conceptual artist. Her practice often takes shape in the form of educator, curator, and programmer. Alexandria’s concerns frequently address visibility, family, locality, and mobility. Her work tends to insert itself at the axis of personal experience and myth—usually reliant upon the collection of artifacts, material culture, and an attentiveness to current and historical events. During her participation at ICI’s Curatorial Intensive in New Orleans, Alexandria will be focusing on her curatorial work on AfroSurrealism, and reigniting Chicago’s Surrealist past. Alexandria has been featured in several exhibitions from Milwaukee, WI; St. Louis, MO; Boston, MA; Brooklyn, NY; and of course her in hometown Chicago, IL. She was a recipient of the Propeller Fund Grant (2013); the Individual Artist Grant from Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (2015); and the 3Arts Award in the Teaching Artist category (2016). She has received fellowships as Resident Curator with HATCH Projects (2013-14); Public Studio Artist in Residence at the Chicago Cultural Center (2015); Resident Artist at the Stony Island Arts Bank and the Center for Afrofuturist Studies (2016). Most recently, Alexandria was highlighted in Time Out Chicago (2016) and listed in Newcity’s “Breakout Artists: Chicago’s Next Generation of Image Makers” (2015). She received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
