About the Artist
Kameelah Janan Rasheed grapples with the poetics, politics, and pleasures of the unfinished and uncontained. Her work has been exhibited at institutions including the 2017 Venice Biennale, ICA Philadelphia, Brooklyn Museum, New Museum, Studio Museum in Harlem, Brooklyn Public Library, The Kitchen, and Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, among others. She is the author of New Theories (Printed Matter, 2019) and An Alphabetical Accumulation of Approximate Observations (Endless Editions, 2019).
Major support for Kissing through a Curtain is provided by the Artist’s Resource Trust (A.R.T.) Fund, a fund of Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation. SAHA provided production support for Aslı Çavuşoğlu. Programming at MASS MoCA is made possible in part by the Barr Foundation, Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, and Mass Cultural Council.
