This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.

New York-based artist, writer, and educator Kameelah Janan Rasheed is known for work that takes an experimental approach to narrating black experience. Working across a range of media, Rasheed often conceives exhibitions as pedagogical experiences with the power to explore conflicting histories, hidden narratives, archives, memory, and public space. Rasheed is showing newly developed work following a recent residency in Glasgow.

Rasheed is especially well-known for projects such as How To Suffer Politely (And Other Etiquette), a series of billboard text works that satirise traditional etiquette guides. Created in response to escalating violence against black people across the United States, the work examines the expectations placed on people to police their reactions while maintaining restraint.
