Image of Baseera Khan
Former Faculty

Baseera Khan is a New York-based artist who sees bodies as constantly subject to volatile social environments globally and most notably within capitalist-driven societies such as the United States. Volatility creates a need for Khan to self-censor and develop secretive environments. Living between surveilled and othered, she can find exile anywhere and kinship by its side. These life lessons transform into motives of obscurity that lead her to a careful deployment of material and linguistic shifts. The use of fashion, photography, textiles and music, sculpture and performance manifest Khan's native femme Muslim American experience, a legacy for her aesthetic concealment.
