Kameelah Janan Rasheed

Visual Arts Residency

Kameelah Janan Rasheed is a learner seeking to make her learning and thinking visible through an ecosystem of iterative projects including “architecturally-scaled collages,” poetic gestures, long-form essays, publications, large-scale public works, digital archives, teaching, curriculum development, lecture performances, stand up comedy, and other forms yet to be determined.

Rasheed’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at the 2017 Venice Biennale; New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, NY; The Kitchen, New York, NY; Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, Portland, OR; Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, PA; Printed Matter, New York, NY; Jack Shainman Gallery, New York, NY; Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY; Bronx Museum, New York, NY; Queens Museum, New York, NY; Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York, NY; Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York, NY; and PinchukArtCentre, Kyiv, Ukraine, among others. She has forthcoming shows at Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada; Tufts University, Medford, MA; Oberlin College, Oberlin, OH; and Reid Gallery, Glasgow, UK.

Her work has been written about in Artforum, Guernica Magazine, The New York Times, Art21, BOMB, Hyperallergic, ArtSlant, and Frieze, among others.
