Baseera Khan

Baseera Khan is a New York–based performance and visual artist whose work treats decolonial histories, practices, and archives as geographies of the future. Her first US solo show, iamuslima at Participant Inc, New York, sprang from her experiences as a self-described femme Muslim in America, externalizing a lesson she learned  a young age: "self-censorship and secrecies can be aestheticized." Her art has been featured in group exhibitions at the SculptureCenter, New York; Katonah Museum of Art, New York; MoCA Tucson, Arizona; The Kitchen, New York; Aspen Art Museum, Aspen; and others. Khan has performed at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Queens Museum, and ArtPop Montreal International Music Festival.
