Alexandria Eregbu is an artist and educator whose practice draws from craft, material histories, and surrealist activity to deepen her connectivity to the natural world. Her work is often driven by notions of 'home'β€” studying African stories and objects of familial and ancestral origin between West Africa, the Caribbean, and her hometown Chicago. Her creative platform, Finding Ijeoma offers curated experiences and consultation for clients engaged in the arts, multimedia storytelling [alexandriaeregbu.com], and learning centered on African art and literature through commissions, workshops, exhibitions and events. Most recently Alexandria released β€˜The Reason Why We Hunt,’ prologue for her film MMIRI: Origin Stories. Currently, Alexandria teaches as a lecturer in the department of Fiber & Material Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
