MFA Art Practice presents a talk by artist and MFA Art Practice faculty member Baseera Khan, as part of its Lunchtime Lecture Series.


Baseera Khan is a New York-based artist whose work shares an experience 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's "iammuslima" was originally presented at Participant Inc Gallery, NYC, and traveled to Moudy Gallery at Texas Christian University, and Fine Arts Museum of Colorado Springs. She has performed at Whitney Museum of Art, Queens Museum and ArtPop Montreal International Music Festival. She has participated in residencies at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture; Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) Process Space; Abrons Art Center; and Pioneer Works. Her work is included in the collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Khan is a member of the MFA Art Practice faculty at SVA.
