Alexandria Deters

Born in 1992 in San Jose, California, Deters is currently a Bronx, New York based artist. In 2016 she graduated with a MA in American Fine and Decorative Art from the world-renowned Sotheby’s Institute of Art in New York. She first began her embroidery practice in 2010 at San Francisco State University, where she received her BA in Art History and Women and Gender Studies in 2015. 


Deters uses the medium of embroidery as a form of meditation. Her practice is deeply rooted in consent and with her own struggles with body positivity and her continual research on queer and erotic art. Recent Group exhibitions include: MALE GAZE: Life, Legend, Legacy, Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art, NY, NY (2018); The Every Woman Biennial, New York, NY (2019); and Idol Worship, curated by Emily Colucci, Smack Mellon, Brooklyn, New York (2019).
