Sabrina Greig is an art critic and independent curator 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, the Chicago Artist Coalition, and ACRE Project Galleries. During the Chicago Artist Coalition’s HATCH Projects curatorial residency, she has curated the exhibition Body as Image that was reviewed by the Chicago Tribune. 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 was 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, and has been featured in Hyperallergic, The Chicago Tribune, and The Observer.
