The Moody Center for the Arts presents "Baseera Khan" opening reception
The Moody will present the first solo exhibition in Houston by Texas-born, New York-based artist Baseera Khan. Featuring new commissions, as well as existing sculpture, photography, installation, and performance work, the presentation addresses issues of race, gender, colonialism, cultural appropriation, and migration connected to the artist’s Muslim and queer identities.
Responding to both the architecture of the Moody’s award-winning Michael Maltzan building and the history of Houston, the project is conceived as a means of relating the artist’s personal history with broader issues facing our current world, and will be activated by the Moody’s signature Artists-in-Dialogue and Dimensions Variable programs.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until August 27, 2022.
