Baseera Khan: Weight on History

Baseera Khan: Weight on History

Presented by Contemporary Arts Center and FotoFocus at Contemporary Arts Center

Baseera Khan shifts seamlessly between media to explore the interconnectedness of capital, politics, and the body. Their work in video, photography, sculpture, and performance creates spaces of reprieve, beauty, and safety, while also critiquing power structures and knowledge systems that systemically exclude or misrepresent marginalized populations. For their first solo exhibition in the Midwest, Khan brings together new and recent collages, sculptures, and video, alongside a major commission that responds to architectural signifiers of power. The exhibition is co-organized with the Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University, where it was on view in the summer of 2022.
Baseera Khan: Weight on History is a curated exhibition for the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial: World Record.
