This lecture is presented as part of the fall 2021 Visiting Artist Lecture Series, free and open to all. Registration is required for Zoom Access.
Kameelah Janan Rasheed (b. 1985, East Palo Alto, CA; lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) is a learner grappling with the poetics, politics, and pleasures of the unfinished. With the page, the wall, the computer screen, and public space as her compositional fields, she creates associative arrangements of letters, words, and shapes that invite an embodied and iterative reading process. Rasheed is invested in Black storytelling technologies that ask us to consider ways of [un]learning that are interdisciplinary, interspecies, and interstellar. Rasheed’s work has been exhibited internationally and nationally. She is the author of two artist’s books, An Alphabetical Accumulation of Approximate Observations (Endless Editions, 2019) and No New Theories (Printed Matter, 2019). She is a 2021 Guggenheim Fellow in Fine Arts. Rasheed is the founder of Mapping the Spirit as well as the owner and founder of Orange Tangent Study.
