Event description

Description

Join three artists whose works challenge and defy conceptions about Muslim-American experiences and identities in this discussion inspired by exhibitions at BHS and BRIC. Kameelah Janan Rasheed’s An Opening, on view at BHS, situates Muslim identities in an opaque landscape of text excerpts and automatically-triggered segments of oral history audio. Asif Mian and Baseera Khan share their mixed-media sculpture and installations that unpack narratives and layer cultural identity with pop culture in Beyond Geographies, on view at BRIC. These artists discuss how their works share slivers of a diverse range of identities in Muslim-American communities in a conversation moderated by curator and essayist Sara Raza.

Presented in connection with BHS’s Muslims in Brooklyn project and the exhibitions An Opening at BHS and Beyond Geographies: Contemporary Art and Muslim Experience at BRIC House
