Curatorial

_r2a7759-1

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 in Community as Family with the Haitian American Museum of Chicago and her assistance in the exhibition series The Black Experience at the LeRoy Neiman Center at SAIC, focused on complicating notions of citizenship and culture. Her assistance in programming the concept for the stage presentation for WE Day Illinois with the Chicago Community Trust, included managing a performance by artist Jamila Woods and four poets from Louder Than a Bomb.

Primarily working across video, soundscapes, and performance, her current curatorial fellowship at ACRE Projects explores artists that engage with digital and virtual spaces to locate a stronger sense of selfhood and racial identity. 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 Fnewsmagazine, Bad at Sports, and writes regularly for Sixty Inches from the Center.
