Baseera Khan, iamuslima

August 21, 2017 - September 21, 2017

Baseera Khan exhibition

“Baseera Khan, iamuslima,” features a selection of prints, sculptures, textiles, archival material and other performative objects used by the artist to reflect on  autobiographical narratives. In considering her family history, Khan acknowledges the presence of decolonial trauma and reoccurring themes that affected her youth, such as immigration, displacement, anxiety and social mobility. While recognizing her Indian-Iranian-Afghani heritage, Khan reflects on the stress she experienced growing up in a Muslim American family in Texas. Tradition, memory, religion, love, intimacy and language become mechanisms that entwine and flex to inform her position. Inspired by writers such as Frantz Fanon and Jean Genet, Khan explores her lived experience through points of intersection: as a Muslim, an artist and a femme person of color.
