Baseera Khan

Visual Arts Residency

Baseera Khan is a New York-based artist whose work shares experiences of exile and kinship shaped by economic, pop cultural, and political situations. She mixes consumerism with spirituality and treats decolonial histories, practices, and archives as geographies of the future. Khan was recently included in the group exhibition In Practice: Another Echo at SculptureCenter. Her first solo exhibition, iamuslima, took place at Participant Inc in 2017 and is currently on tour to Moudy Gallery at Texas Christian University and the Fine Arts Museum of Colorado Springs. She has performed at Whitney Museum of Art, Queens Museum, and ArtPop Montreal International Music Festival.

Khan has completed an artist-in-residence program at Abrons Art Center, was an International Travel Fellow to Jerusalem/Ramallah through Apexart, a Process Space artist-in-residence for Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She is published in Artforum Magazine, Art in America, Bomb Magazine, OSMOSMagazine, Unbag, and TDR Drama Review. She received an M.F.A. at Cornell University and B.F.A. from the University of North Texas.
