Alexandria Eregbu is a visual artist, independent curator, and educator. Her practice and research refers to lived experience and the natural world as a resource to meditate on both the power of individual existence and the potency of collectivized efforts towards radical and spiritual transformation. As an artist, Alexandria’s dynamic practice has illuminated pathways globally, nationally, and throughout the Midwest. She has held fellowships with ACRE (Steuben, WI); HATCH Projects, Stony Island Arts Bank, (Chicago, IL); The Center for Afrofuturist Studies (Iowa City, IA), Independent Curators International (New Orleans, New York City, Martinique); and The Camargo Foundation/3Arts Residency (France).

Amongst her curatorial projects, du monde noir is an artistically run collective that seeks to identify contemporary evidences of Surrealist activity produced by visual artists and writers of the African diaspora in the U.S. and abroad. Currently, Alexandria serves as a Curator of Commissioned Works for Illinois Humanities and their two-year initiative, “Envisioning Justice.” She is an MA Candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the department of Visual + Critical Studies.
