Alicia Eggert's work in the Faculty Gallery

Alicia earned an undergraduate degree in Interior Design from Drexel University in Philadelphia, studied Scandinavian architecture and design in Denmark, and practiced at an architectural firm in New York for several years before pursuing a career in art. She received a Full Tuition Fellowship to pursue her MFA in Sculpture/Dimensional Studies from Alfred University, which she completed in 2009. Eggert’s art practice is collaborative and interdisciplinary, and focuses on the relationship between language, image and time. Her work primarily takes the form of sculpture, installation, and time-based media, and has been exhibited at institutions across the country and around the world. It is currently included in “O’Clock. Time design, design time,” an exhibition originally held at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan in 2011 that will soon travel to Beijing, which places her sculpture in the company of work by artists such as John Cage and Damien Hirst. Her work was also selected for SIGGRAPH Asia 2011 in Hong Kong, ISEA2012 (International Symposium on Electronic Art) at the Albuquerque Museum of Art in New Mexico, Cyberfest 2012 in St. Petersburg, Russia, and a selective group exhibition at the University of New England Art Gallery, titled “Maine Women Pioneers III: Vanguard.” Other institutions that have exhibited Eggert’s work include the Portland Museum of Art in Maine, the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, and galleries/festivals in the UK, Australia, Poland, Belgium and Canada.
