Kameelah Janan Rasheed

New York-based artist, writer and educator Kameelah Janan Rasheed explores Black textual production and interdisciplinary storytelling. Working across a range of media, forms and contexts, Rasheed takes an experimental approach to the arrangement of letters, words, sentences, shapes, tones and textures. Her work frequently engages with the poetry, politics and pleasures of approximation as well as (mis)recognition, translation, privacy and dirty data.

A believer in the generative qualities of unfinished work, Rasheed creates iterative and provisional projects. These include publications, poetry, prints, digital archives, lecture-performances, library interventions, performance scores and sprawling, ‘architecturally-scaled’ xerox-based collages.
