Lives & Works in Los Angeles, USA
David Alekhuogie’s multidisciplinary practice spans photography, textiles, collage, video, and sculpture, incorporating these various media to examine questions of African American cultural heritage, authorship, artistic hierarchies of art versus craft, and the politics of Black identity in the United States.

Alekhuogie received an MFA from Yale University (2015) and a post-bac BFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2013). Featured in MoMA’s 2020 exhibition New Photography: Companion Pieces, Alekhuogie’s work has most recently been on view in Remix: Recent Acquisitions of Photographs at the Getty Museum and will be featured in the upcoming shows Black Diasporas: 21st Century Art and Poetics at the L.A. County Museum of Art and Revolutions: Art from the Hirshhorn Collection, 1860-1960 at the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Alekhougie’s work has been acquired by several US-based collections, the Getty Museum; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Milwaukee Art Museum; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Minneapolis Institute of Art; and Hirshhorn Museum. He is the recipient of the 2024 Harvard Radcliffe Fellowship and the 2019 Rema Hort Mann Foundation Emerging Artist Grant.
