In collaboration with the Low Residency MFA in Visual Studies at PNCA, home school is ecstatic to host Alexandria Eregbu! Join us on 7/13 at Yale Union, 5pm for her talk, Mapping the Legacy of the Marvelous: Uses of the AfroSurreal from West Africa and Across the Atlantic! Snacks and refreshments will be available. The talk will be livestreamed and archived for distance learning.

Fundamentally motivated by philosophical and artistic contributions rooted in the African diaspora, Mapping the Legacy of the Marvelous: Uses of the AfroSurreal from West Africa and Across the Atlantic examines the role that visual language and Surrealist discourse have influenced Alexandria’s practice.
