Event description

Description

On Sunday, December 3, join us for a conversation and workshop with Kameelah Janan Rasheed—an artist whose work is featured in the exhibition Speech/Acts—co-presented with the Leeway Foundation.

This event is free and open to the public; register here. Please be in touch if you have childcare and/or ASL needs.

Kameelah Janan Rasheed (b. 1985) is an artist-archivist based in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from East Palo Alto, CA with brief stints in Johannesburg, South Africa, Kameelah's interdisciplinary and research ­intensive practice considers ideas of selective legibility and opaqueness as a political strategy; the tension between narrative contingencies and narrative resolutions; as well as black traditions of covert literacies and self-publishing. Until September 2016, she will be a Keyholder Resident at the Lower East Side Printshop. She is also a recipient of the Triple Canopy's 2015 NYPL Labs Commission where she is conducting archival research on early 20th-century Black religious movements through NYPL's expansive archive.
