Sabrina Greig is an art critic, curator, and communications professional from New York City. She graduated with a B.A from Carleton College and M.A in Art History from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).
Her curatorial practice uses exhibition spaces to showcase experiences that are unique to Diasporic communities on the margins. Through the lens of Afrofuturism, she seeks to understand past cultural histories in an effort to transcend contemporary oppressive narratives that frequently surround people of color. Her curatorial work has been exhibited at the Haitian American Museum of Chicago, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and ACRE Project Galleries. Through her 2016-2017 curatorial residency at ACRE Projects, she produced the two exhibits New Earth: Caribbean Mythmaking and Homecoming where she explored artists who engaged with digital and virtual spaces to locate a stronger sense of selfhood and racial identity. She executed the digital communications for the exhibition program the Petty Biennial on view at the Arts Incubator through the University of Chicago May 19 – June 23, 2017. In December 2017, she will be a participant in the Ghetto Biennial located in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Her art criticism and research draws from her curatorial practice, as she focuses on representations of the Black diaspora in popular culture, fine art, and gentrified urban spaces. She has published work in Arts.Black, Contemporary And, Bad at Sports, Sixty Inches from the Center, and Fnewsmagazine.
